Armstrong played a limited role for the Wizards and Hawks last season (he was traded to Atlanta as a throw in with the Kirk Hinrich deal). A sign of Armstrong’s effectiveness is that he couldn’t get minutes ahead of Jason Collins in Atlanta. The only time he made headlines was for a nasty foul on Joel Anthony that got him a suspension.
Armstrong was the former first round pick (No. 12 overall) of the Hornets back in 2006.
