Hornets Waive Three, Roster Stands at 16
Published: December 17, 2011
The Hornets announced today that they have requested waivers on guard Justin Dentmon, guard Terrico White and forward Moses Ehambe, cutting the roster to 16 just nine days before the first regular season game of the year.
Dentmon, a University of Washington product, played five minutes in last night’s 97-90 win over Memphis, collecting one assist. He also performed well in the scrimmage today at New Orleans Arena.White, a University of Mississippi product, played 13 minutes in last night’s game. Ehambe, an Oral Roberts product, played five minutes last night, missing on all three shot attempts from the field.
Those on the roster without guaranteed contracts this season include Brian Butch, Jerome Dyson, Carldell “Squeaky” Johnson, Trey Johnson, DaJuan Summers and Lance Thomas. With the Hornets expected to pick up a backup point guard through free agency, that would leave at least two guys currently on the roster on the outside looking in.
