Charlotte Hornets waive four, keep former college star
The Charlotte Hornets officially know what their opening night roster looks like. The team decided to waive four players on Friday, keeping one roster spot open.
Here's who didn't make it:
Interestingly enough, the University of Kentucky's Aaron Harrison (an undrafted free agent) and his non-guaranteed contract made the cut. Harrison's preseason statistics were nothing to write home about, but apparently Charlotte saw enough to keep him around.
It's highly unlikely Harrison sees the floor as a rookie unless Kemba Walker, Jeremy Lin or Brian Roberts suffer a serious injury, but crazier things have happened.
.@hornets GM Rich Cho announced today that Hornets have waived Sam Thompson, Jason Washburn, Damien Wilkins and Elliot Williams.
