The Hornets have released the following statement:

The New Orleans Hornets announced today that they have released forward Joe Alexander.
 
Alexander did not appear in a regular season game this season. He averaged 1.2 points and 1.7 rebounds in six preseason games (one start) with the Hornets. The third-year pro has career averages of 4.2 points and 1.8 rebounds in 67 regular season games. 

The Hornets roster now stands at 14.

My take on this roster move?

Happy trails Joe Alexander. Hopefully, you can lure Aaron Gray to whatever no basketball talent endeavor you will undoubtedly get yourself into. Deuces.

I agree with ur_gmas_daughter, I'd rather have Damps and go after another wing like Iggy, Wallace or somebody like that. All we really need is defense and size with a little offense sprinkled in from our backup center.

Just say no to Dampier. Huge step in the wrong direction.

I agree. Dampier sucks.

Let me be "devils advocate" and try to block Shaq's voice tellin you his name is "Ericka Dampier" while I ask this. Wouldn't you want Dampier if we could sign him for a reasonable price as a back-up 5 opposed to Mbenga & Pops? IF we did, couldn't we then go after the Gerald Wallace, Iggy and Kevin Martin's with Peja's expiring and not use it to get a big?

Might there be a trade with more players coming in than going out? Or maybe a Dampier signing?
