Charlotte Hornets Sign Tyler Hansbrough

by July 22, 2015

Psycho T is returning to North Carolina.

The Charlotte Hornets have reportedly come to terms with free agent big man Tyler Hansbrough.

Hansbrough, 29, put up 3.6 points and 3.6 rebounds in 74 games with the Toronto Raptors last season.

Per the Charlotte Observer:

This might be the last move the Hornets make in free agency. They came to terms late Tuesday with Hansbrough to be their energy guy/sixth big man.


He figures to raise competition in training camp, based on intensity. But in stints with Indiana and Toronto, he has struggled to find a consistent place on an NBA roster.


In six NBA seasons since starring for North Carolina, Hansbrough has averaged 7.2 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. His best season was his second with Indiana, in 2010-11, when he averaged 11 points and 5.2 rebounds over 70 games.
