Brian Roberts has agreed to a two-year deal to play with the Olympiakos in Greece next season.
Roberts spent last season with the Hornets after spending time with the Blazers, Hornets, and Pelicans before that. At this point, Roberts could be done in the NBA.
After acquiring Roberts from Charlotte just days ago, the Miami Heat have now moved him to Portland along with a second-round pick to drop below the luxury tax line. The team will save $6M.
The point guard has averaged 7.4 points, 2.6 assists, 1.5 rebounds and 18.5 minutes while shooting 41.2 percent from the field, 35.2 percent from three-point range and 91.9 percent from the foul line. He'll still be a backup guard and has little to no fantasy value in Portland.
Brian Roberts struggled from the field again Thursday night, hitting just five of his 13 shots, and only one of his seven three-point attempts. Roberts has struggled to find his stroke since taking over in the starting lineup for the injured Kemba Walker. He is shooting 38 percent from the field and 23 percent from three-point range in his last five games.
Since taking over for Walker, Roberts is averaging 11 points, 4.6 assists, and 2.8 rebounds and has led Charlotte to a 4-1 record in those games. It hasn't been pretty, but Roberts is getting it done, at least in terms of W's. Fantasy owners were hopeful that Roberts would put up numbers similar to Walkers, but they have been very disappointed. I think Roberts numbers can only improve from here, and owners should give him another week or so before dropping him outright.
Brian Roberts, who is replacing injured Kemba Walker as Charlotte's starting point guard, struggled Wednesday night against San Antonio. Roberts scored eight points on 3-11 shooting while also adding six assists and three steals in the losing effort. If Charlotte has any plan of returning to the playoffs, Roberts will have to step up and lead this team there. Charlotte's offense is 28th overall in efficiency, and much of that was with Walker in the lineup, so Roberts has his work cut out for him.
Brian Roberts struggled from the field on Wednesday night, but if he proved anything, it's that he can contribute in several different categories. Roberts added six assists, three rebounds, and three steals to go along with his eight points. Once he finds his shot, Roberts should be fine. Charlotte's next game is Saturday against Denver. Expect Roberts to have a bounce back game against the Nuggets, who currently boast the 23rd most efficient defense in the league.
Brian Roberts started in place of the injured Kemba Walker(knee) and scored 17 points while helping Charlotte pick up a big win against the Knicks on Saturday. Roberts also grabbed three rebounds and dished out three assists in 33 minutes of action.
If Kemba Walker's knee does indeed require surgery, Roberts will take over point guard duties for Charlotte. He has filled in nicely in Walker's absence, leading Charlotte to victory in the three games Walker has missed. Lance Stephenson is also again being rumored in trade talks with Brookyln, and if that is the case, expect Roberts to play huge minutes as he is the only healthy point guard for Charlotte right now.
