Hornets sign Mustafa Shakur

NBADRAFTEXPRESS is reporting that the New Orleans Hornets have signed former Arizona guard Mustafa Shakur to a pratically guaranteed contract..

Its funny that now they are teammates..But in 2003 Shakur and Chris Paul were the top 2 rated point guards coming out of high school...

The Hornets were looking for a backup for CP3 since trading Darren Collison to The Pacers earlier this month.....

i think this signing isnt enuff Shakur hasnt prove himself at the NBA level yet....

I like the signing. He's only

I like the signing. He's only 26, he has good size for a lead guard and could provide something.

I'm interested to see how he does as a backup. Maybe he could provide at least some solid backup minutes and stats

CP could show him a few

CP could show him a few things and help him out but probably nothing more than a bench player. Good pick up for the price range they were looking for.

He was impressive in SL. He's

He was impressive in SL. He's got very good size from the PG spot, is quick and a pretty good athlete, and he even was making jump shots! 3rd PG for the Hornets, they still need a backup for Paul

I think he could play the

I think he could play the same role that Janero Pargo played for them a couple years ago.. Come in, play solid and look for easy buckets.. Sort of a change of pace PG.. He is a little out of control and CP3 is all control.. Its a good signing..

Solid backup guard.

He played well for Tulsa last year averaging about 19 and 7 assists I believe. Not an impact player but good enough as backup.

Agreed Durantula83. He's to

Agreed Durantula83. He's to the point where he's improved to the level where he can be a backup pg in this league playing 10-15 min a night. Just took him a lil more time than others to become a steady player who makes good decisions and able to knock down shots from the perimeter consistently. He should be fine, I like this pick up.

ready

I like the fact that someone other than a six year journey man retread is getting an oppurtunity, he has put the work in and performed well and put up solid numbers in the D league. Demps must actually be around GYMS. Don't get me started on the GM's in this league

Was the contract practically

Was the contract practically guaranteed or did you mean to say partially guaranteed?
