Hornets sign 6-foot-9 free agent forward Tyler Hansbrough

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Tyler Hansbrough hopes to jumpstart his basketball career in the same state where he first emerged on to the national scene.

The former North Carolina Tar Heels star forward signed a free agent contract with the Charlotte Hornets on Wednesday. Terms of the deal were not announced.

"Obviously I'm comfortable in North Carolina, but I (also) felt like this would be a good fit for me to come in and bring some energy and do what I can to win here," Hansbrough said during his introductory press conference Wednesday at the team's downtown arena.
