Charlotte Bobcats send Patrick O'Bryant training camp invite

Those crazy Cats. The soon-to-be Hornets are going to take a look at “Patty O’B” in training camp. Does he have a chance at making the team? Maybe, but, he wouldn’t get a lot of playing time.

He was a first round pick in a rather weak 2006 draft, at least because there quite a number of busts in that class. O’Bryant was one of them and, in just four seasons, he disappeared. Last NBA game was during 2009-10 season. During his NBA career he averaged 2.1 points, 1.4 rebounds, and 0.4 blocks in just 5.8 minutes. He’s been playing small roles in the D-League and overseas.

At 27 years old, he still has room to grow although he may never be a starter in the NBA. Still, as the 9th pick in his draft, he will go down as a bust. I mean, I’m not sure what else to say for him. If he can get on a roster, then that’s great. That’s the first step. Then, you go for more minutes during practice and stuff. As long as he’s ready to go when his number is called, he should be fine.
