The Bobcats have waived Jeff Adrien and Paris Horne, according to Rick Bonnell of the Charlotte Observer (via Twitter).  Both players were signed to non-guaranteed, make-good contracts in September.  Charlotte's roster now stands at 16.

Adrien, 26, saw limited playing time with the Warriors in 2010/11 and the Rockets in 2011/12.  The UConn product reportedly drew interest from the the Rockets, Clippers, Lakers, Spurs, and Celtics before agreeing to terms with the Bobcats.  The forward also spent time with Orlando's Summer League team in 2010, though there was obviously different personnel in place.

Horne, 25, spent last season in Germany with BG Gottingen.  The 6'3" guard out of St. John's made a strong impression on the Bobcats as a member of their Summer League team this year but was unable to crack the final 15.  Bonnell notes that Horne was an intriguing player due to his quickness but was still a longshot to hang on.
