Bullets set to add Robinson from CBA


The injury-depleted Washington Bullets, who have lost nine of their past 10 games, are expected to add shooting guard Larry Robinson, who played briefly for Washington two years ago, to their roster in time for tomorrow night's game against the Hornets in Charlotte.

A team source said Robinson, a 6-foot-5, left-handed shooter, will sign a 10-day contract and could participate in today's practice.

The Centenary graduate has been playing in the CBA the past two seasons and is averaging 16 points for the Rapid City Thrillers.

The Bullets have become vulnerable in the backcourt with Doug Overton (thumb) and Rex Chapman (ankle) on the injured list and guard LaBradford Smith listed as questionable, also with an ankle injury.

Byron Irvin, on his second trial with the Bullets, was signed to a 10-day contract last week. He started and scored 18 points against the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday.
