Bobcats giving Crittenton a chance

Bobcats give Crittenton a chance after suspension

The Charlotte Bobcats will bring Javaris Crittenton to training camp with a non-guaranteed contract, giving the ex-Washington Wizards guard a chance to return to the NBA following his infamous gun altercation with Gilbert Arenas.

Agent Mark Bartelstein said Wednesday Crittenton has accepted a training-camp invitation and is healthy following left ankle surgery.

Crittenton didn't play last season because of the injury and then a 38-game suspension after he and Arenas acknowledged bringing guns into the locker room following a dispute stemming from a card game.

Crittenton pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor gun charge Jan. 25.

The Bobcats are looking for backcourt help after losing Raymond Felton to New York in free agency.
