Hornets sign Mustafa Shakur
General manager Dell Demps says the 6-foot-4 Shakur has good size for a point guard and got the Hornets' attention by thriving in the NBA Development League last season.
Undrafted out of Arizona, the 26-year-old Shakur was been with several NBA teams since 2007 but has yet to play in a regular-season game.
Shakur played two seasons in Europe. Last season, he played for the Tulsa 66ers, averaging 19.2 points, 6.9 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 37.8 minutes.
