CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Two missed flights have ended guard Sherron Collins' chance of returning to the Charlotte Bobcats.
Coach Paul Silas says they planned to bring back the undrafted rookie from Kansas after waiving him, but withdrew the offer last week after Collins missed two flights the team had arranged from his hometown of Chicago.
The Bobcats filled the roster spot Monday by signing guard Garrett Temple of the NBA Development League to a 10-day contract. Silas says he'll be the No. 3 point guard behind D.J. Augustin and Shaun Livingston.
Collins had been in that role, averaging less than a point in 20 games. But Silas says after the second missed flight, "That was kind of it."
Collins was waived Feb. 24 after two trades left Charlotte with 18 players.
