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.
