Undrafted free agent James Southerland has reached agreement to sign a straight training camp deal with the Charlotte Bobcats, a league source told RealGM.
Southerland, a 6-foot-8 forward, played for the Golden State Warriors in the Las Vegas summer league and averaged 11.6 minutes and four points. He’s among the best shooters in the crop of incoming rookies.
Southerland had also considered overseas options before agreeing to a non-guaranteed camp deal.
Southerland, 23, spent four years at Syracuse University, averaging 13.3 points in his senior season.
