Bobcats Waive Erick Dampier
September 14, 2010
Charlotte Bobcats General Manager Rod Higgins announced today that the team has waived center Erick Dampier.
"We explored several trade possibilities involving Erick, but ultimately we have been unable to find a viable option that we felt made our team better," Higgins said. "Out of respect to Erick, we have decided to release him at this time so he may pursue opportunities with other teams prior to training camp."
The Bobcats acquired Dampier, along with guard Matt Carroll and forward Eduardo Najera, on July 13, 2010, in exchange for centers Tyson Chandler and Alexis Ajinca.
In 14 NBA seasons, Dampier has played in 921 games for Indiana, Golden State and Dallas, with career averages of 7.8 points, 7.4 rebounds and 1.5 blocks. In 55 games with Dallas last season, Dampier averaged 6.0 points, 7.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks.
