Hornets Sign Bullard From Rockets

August 13, 2001

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) _ The Charlotte Hornets continued to retool their roster Monday by signing free-agent forward Matt Bullard.

Terms of the deal were not released, but after signing Bryce Drew and Stacey Augmon last month, the Hornets only had $4.5 million left in their mid-level salary cap exception.

Bullard became available Friday when the Houston Rockets renounced the rights to the 6-foot-10 forward.

Bullard is expected to help Charlotte with his long-range shooting. He averaged 5.8 points and 2.1 rebounds a game last season, while shooting 40.8 percent on 3-pointers in 61 games.
