Rod Higgins has waived his share of players in 12 years as an NBA executive. But his most recent cut hit especially close to home: On Saturday night, the Bobcats president of basketball operations waived his own son. “When you make a decision like that to sign your son, you know a day like this could always happen,” Rod Higgins told Yahoo! Sports. “The player realizes the same thing. The personal aspect is the personal aspect. But when you take the next step and realize it’s a business, you always know this could happen.”

Charlotte Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins announced today that the team has signed forward Jeff Adrien and waived guard Cory Higgins. Adrien will wear No. 4. The Bobcats roster remains at 14 players. The 6-7 Adrien joins the Bobcats from the Rio Grande Valley Vipers of the NBA D-League, where he averaged 17.6 points on .563 shooting, 11.2 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.2 blocks in five games played so far this season. He becomes the fourth Gatorade Call-Up of the season.
Cory Higgins, Colorado’s all-time leading scorer, will fill the Charlotte Bobcats’ 15th roster spot. Higgins is the son of Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins. Cory Higgins was recently cut by the Denver Nuggets. At 6-5, Higgins fills what the Bobcats wanted from a fifth guard: A player with the size and skill set to play either guard spot. “One of the things I pride myself in is playing either position, and more importantly, being able to guard either position,’’ Higgins said after practice Sunday night.
