Midseason Josh McRoberts was traded from Orlando to Charlotte for Hakim Warrick as two of the worst teams in the league rearranged the deck chairs on the Titanic.

But McRoberts liked what he got in Charlotte — a starting role and nearly double the minutes. It showed on the court as he averaged what would be career highs of 9.3 points and 7.2 rebounds a game. He played solid ball in those minutes.

Not surprisingly he said he wanted to come back if the money could be worked out. It has been, reports Marc Spears on twitter.

McRoberts will get minutes in Charlotte next to just acquired Al Jefferson — they make a hard working if not physically intimidating front line. It will be interesting to see who works out better next to Jefferson, McRoberts or Bismack Biyombo. Because Biyombo would provide the shot blocking and rim protection you need next to Jefferson, who can score plenty.

Either way, at this price McRoberts is a good value who can be solid for Charlotte off the bench.

    Good for him. I know Philly fans would’ve loved to see Charlie on the bench.
