Bobcats giving Crittenton a chance
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP)
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.
