Hornets waive Rashard Lewis
Lewis was entering the final year of a $118 million, six-year contract, which included a $13.7 million buyout provision for the last year of the deal.
The 6-foot-10 Lewis has averaged 16.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.8 assists during his career. Hampered by knee injuries last season, he played in only 28 games for the Wizards, averaging 7.8 points and 3.9 rebounds.
