Bobcats cut Ely, 2 others to get roster to 15

The Bobcats waived forwards Melvin Ely and Taylor Griffin, and
guard Durrell Summers.

The team also decided Friday not to match the offer sheet to
restricted free agent Dante Cunningham, leaving the roster at 15
players.

Ely’s departure was a mild surprise considering he was brought
in to help fill the void created when Kwame Brown left via free
agency.
