Jefferson thrilled about deal with Bobcats
July 10, 2013
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Al Jefferson says he's thrilled to join the Charlotte Bobcats, regardless of their market size and recent struggles.
The 6-foot-10 center says he was blown away after meeting with team officials last week and ``couldn't sleep a wink'' in anticipation of signing with Charlotte. The move became official Wednesday as the Bobcats introduced their newest free agent acquisition at a press conference.
The Bobcats also announced they have signed first-round draft pick Cody Zeller and waived forward Tyrus Thomas, designating him their amnesty player.
Jefferson says he's thrilled to sign with the Bobcats because ``they're a team that respects my game and wanted me to be a part of their family.''
Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins says Jefferson gives the team the low-post presence it needed.
