The former New Orleans Hornet has been in the NBA for three seasons, and was originally signed by the Memphis Grizzlies after one year playing at Kansas.

Last season, Xavier averaged 3.9 points, 1.8 rebounds and 0.3 assists in 15. minutes. He also played in 50 games.

While he still needs to develop some more on both ends of the court, he brings some added defensive presence. Xavier will likely be pretty low on the depth chart and the shooting guard position, but he will help on D when he does come in the game.
