Rick Bonnell: Bobcats make it official they’re bringing Syracuse forward James Southerland to camp. He shot 40% from 3 last season.
“He can shoot the ball, he has length, he can defend a little bit and, again, he can really shoot it,” Bobcats third-year point guard and former UConn star Kemba Walker told SNY.tv on Saturday evening at the Elite 24 under the Brooklyn Bridge. “We need guys that can spread the floor, so best of luck to him. Hopefully, he can make the team.”
Former Syracuse star James Southerland has an agreement in principle on a non-guaranteed contract with the Charlotte Bobcats. The face of the franchise, who also happens to be a former college rival, believes the undrafted free agent small forward can help a young team in need of some offensive punch off the bench.
Former Syracuse forward James Southerland, a long-range shooter who wasn’t drafted in June, has accepted an invitation to Charlotte Bobcats training camp, president of basketball operations Rod Higgins confirmed Saturday. Southerland, a 6-8 forward, made 40 percent from the college 3-point line as a senior for the Orangemen. Long-range shooting has been a concern for the Bobcats, as new coach Steve Clifford tries to create better spacing offensively.
James Southerland, the former Syracuse University basketball player, will go to training camp with the NBA’s Charlotte Bobcats, according to his agent. Southerland, a 6-foot-8 forward, was not selected in the NBA’s June draft. After the draft, Southerland played for the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA’s Orlando Summer League and then with the Golden State Warriors in the NBA’s Las Vegas Summer League. Southerland scored 11 points in Golden State’s win over the Charlotte Bobcats in the semifinals of the Las Vegas Summer League. That performance might have garnered Southerland some attention from the Bobcats. Andy Shiffman, Southerland’s agent with Chicago-based Priority Sports, confirmed Southerland’s decision to sign with the Bobcats. The contract is non-guaranteed.
James Southerland received consideration from the San Antonio Spurs to be drafted with the No. 58 pick in last week’s NBA draft, but the Syracuse alum never had a guarantee out of the organization that simply asked whether he would spend next season overseas, a league source told RealGM. While Southerland didn’t know if the Spurs would ultimately select him, he understood going undrafted provided an opportunity to showcase himself around the NBA. Late in the second round, Southerland never received an offer from the Spurs, much less one to formally reject, a source said.
