Sources: Hornets signing Brian Roberts

Free-agent guard Brian Roberts has agreed to a two-year, $5.5 million contract with the Charlotte Hornets, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Roberts has been a terrific success story in the NBA, working his way as an undrafted player out of Dayton, to three seasons with the Brose Baskets in Germany, to his first multiyear year deal in the NBA now.

Charlotte will use Roberts largely as a backup to Kemba Walker, but it's likely they'll share some time together on the floor.

Roberts, 28, played the past two seasons for New Orleans, where he averaged 8.2 points and three assists per game.
