Hansbrough comes from the G League, where averaged 17.6 points and 12.2 rebounds last year for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants.

 

The previous season he played with the Charlotte Hornets, averaging 2.4 points and 2 rebounds in 7.8 minutes a game.

 

Over his career, Hansbrough has averaged 6.7 points and 4.2 rebounds in seven NBA seasons with the Pacers, Raptors, and Hornets.

 

A college star at North Carolina, Hansbrough was a four-time First-Team All-American, whose 20.2 point career average was the sixth-highest in school history.

 

He led the Tar Heels to a 120-22 record, and graduated as the school’s all-time career leader in rebounds.

 

Hansbrough is also Carolina’s all-time leading scorer in NCAA Tournament play with 325 points, fourth-most in NCAA history behind only Christian Laettner, Elvin Hayes and Danny Manning.

 

He was the 13th overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft by the Pacers.
