The Charlotte Bobcats waived Abdul Gaddy and Troy Daniels, which cuts the roster to 16 players.

Both point guards were training camp invites considered long shots to make the team.

Gaddy, an undrafted rookie, played on Charlotte’s summer league team. He appeared in four games and started once.  He averaged 14.5 minutes and had a 17-point outing in the third game.

Gaddy was one of six Bobcats who did not play in the team’s 87-85 exhibition loss to Atlanta on Tuesday.

At Washington, Gaddy ranks second on the school’s all-time assist list with 469.  He overcame a season-ending knee injury during his sophomore year in 2010-11 and did well to come back and never miss a game the next two seasons. He was a two-time captain who averaged 10.9 points, 4.6 assists and 3.2 rebounds last season as a senior.

Gaddy career averages: 7.7 points, 4.0 assists and 2.4 rebounds.

However, considering the hype that surrounded him before he arrived at Washington, he didn’t live up to his many expectations. After his senior year at Tacoma’s Bellermine Prep, Gaddy was selected a McDonald’s and Parade Magazine All-American. He was also considered the second-best point guard in the nation that year by Scout.com.

Before finishing at Washington, Gaddy said he had no regrets about his basketball career.
