HoopsHype Mustafa Shakur rumors
The New Orleans Hornets announced today that they have signed free agent guard Mustafa Shakur. Per team policy, terms of the contracts were not released. “Mustafa will be able to give us depth at the point guard position,” said Hornets General Manager Dell Demps. “He has thrived in the D-League and has great size and vision for a point guard.” NBA.com
The New Orleans Hornets have signed point guard Mustafa Shakur to a partially guaranteed contract for the upcoming season. Shakur, who turned 26 last Wednesday, will vie to become Chris Paul's backup. The rookie out of Arizona has played in 7 NBA regular season games during his professional career with San Antonio and Minnesota. Most recently, he spent time on the roster with Oklahoma City but did not see any playing time. NewOrleans.com
Mustafa Shakur was a revelation for the Tulsa 66ers last season in the NBA D-League. He averaged 19.3 points and 6.9 assists along with 4.5 rebounds for the 66ers, and had a PER of 22. That's pretty nifty stuff. He also showed considerable leadership, helping his team make the playoffs as a 25-year-old. He was called up last season but not given any time on a Thunder squad deep in backcourt depth. FanHouse.com
