NEW ORLEANS (AP) -The New Orleans Hornets formally welcomed Chris ``Birdman'' Andersen back to the club Wednesday after he spent more than two years out of the NBA because of a drug suspension.
Andersen was kicked out of the league in January 27, 2006, for violating the league's drug policy and had to wait two years to apply for reinstatement.
The NBA reinstated him on Tuesday, when Andersen was in New Orleans for a physical.
Andersen's rights belonged to the Hornets as long as they offered him a contract within 30 days. The free-agent contract was announced on Wednesday, but the terms were not disclosed.
