CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Bobcats have signed Juwan Howard three days after reaching an agreement with the veteran forward.

The move on Friday comes as new Bobcats Boris Diaw, Raja Bell and Sean Singletary reported to the team for physicals. They were acquired Wednesday in a trade that sent top scorer Jason Richardson and forward Jared Dudley to Phoenix.

The Bobcats waived little-used forward Dwayne Jones to make room on the roster for the four new players.

Howard had been without a job since being released by Denver after the Allen Iverson trade last month. A former All-Star in his 15th season, Howard's numbers have declined in the past few seasons.

He averaged 1.1 points in 50 games with Dallas last season.
