CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — 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.
