“We’ve had so many injuries,” coach Monty Williams said Tuesday. “We thought having some more depth at our wing spot, there’s a chance he could play some four because of his ability to shoot the ball and he’s a young player (24) who had some success in Portland and played really well overseas.

“He’s a guy Dell and his staff were following for a while. We kept an eye on him and have been trying to get it done for a couple of weeks, maybe a little bit longer. … How he’s going to fit in with us, we’ll see.”

“This is a great opportunity, one I couldn’t turn down when I heard about it,” (Luke) Babbitt said. “I’m just thankful to Dell and coach Williams for giving me the opportunity. Obviously there’s been a lot of injuries here. So I’m just looking to fill in wherever I can. We’ve got about a half season left and this team is playing well. I’m just coming in and trying to fit in.”
