CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -The Charlotte Bobcats waived veteran Brevin Knight on Friday, leaving the team without a backup point guard.
Knight had a buyout clause in his contract worth $1.5 million. He was scheduled to make just more than $4 million next season.
One of the Bobcats' first free-agent signings, Knight started in the team's inaugural season in 2004-05. Raymond Felton, selected with the fifth pick in the 2005 draft, eventually replaced Knight in the starting lineup.
Now, the Bobcats likely will need to sign another point guard to back up Felton, who averaged 14 points and seven assists last season.
The 31-year-old Knight averaged 9.1 points and 6.6 assists per game last season but was limited to 45 games.
