It’s Official, The Hornets Waive Rashard Lewis

The Hornets officially waived Rashard Lewis today after acquiring him in a trade for Trevor Ariza and Emeka Okafor. This comes at no surprise as Lewis was expected to make $23 million this upcoming season. The Hornets still owe him about $14 mill for the buyout but this still saves around $9 mill that can be used in free agency this year.
