Hornets Waive Dominique Morrison

SUNDAY, 7:05pm: The Hornets have officially requested waivers on Morrison, who was not present for the team's game against the Magic yesterday in Mexico City. 

MONDAY, 11:53am: The Hornets will let go of training camp invitee Dominique Morrison, a source tells Jimmy Smith of The Times-Picayune. Morrison, a 6'6" small forward who went undrafted out of Oral Roberts University this year, was on a non-guaranteed deal believed to be for the minimum salary. The move will bring the team's roster down to 16 players.

The Hornets have Solomon Alabi, Chris Wright and Lance Thomas in camp on non-guaranteed deals, while Brian Roberts has a partial guarantee of $100K. It's unclear what level of guarantee Darius Miller, the 46th overall pick this past June, has on his deal. That means only 11 players on the team are certain to have fully guaranteed contracts, leaving the Hornets with plenty of flexibility. The regular season roster limit is 15, but they don't have to carry any more than 13 players.
