Hornets Waive DJ Strawberry

Published: October 20, 2010

The New Orleans Hornets announced today that they have waived guard D.J. Strawberry, leaving their roster at 15. It’s unclear if this will be the last cut, but now Monty Williams has the option of keeping everyone if he so chooses.

Strawberry played in four preseason games for the Hornets, averaging 3.0 points and 1.0 rebounds in 6.8 minutes per game. He shot only 30% from the floor and didn’t manage to make a three pointer the entire time. It was presumed that if he made the team it would be because of his defense, but apparently he didn’t show enough for Monty to keep him on the squad.

The remaining roster-

pg- Paul, Green, Jarrels

sg- Belinelli, Thornton

sf- Ariza, Peja, Pondexter, *Joe Alexander

pf- West, Smith, Pops, *Joe Alexander

c- Okafor, Gray, Mbenga
