Bobcats pick up 3rd-year option for C Ajinca

BY foxsports • October 30, 2009

The Bobcats wavered on Ajinca's future as he has failed to fit into Charlotte's rotation.

The 2.14-meter center was the 20th pick in the 2008 draft. He played in only 31 games last season and averaged 2.3 points. Bobcats coach Larry Brown then criticized his play and effort when he watched him try out for France last summer.

Ajinca had four points in 10 minutes of Charlotte's 92-59 season-opening loss to Boston on Wednesday.
