Default Cats Officially Resign Melvin Ely

From Charlotte Observer:
Quote:
Charlotte Bobcats restricted free agent Melvin Ely today signed a one-year qualifying offer with the team, worth about $3.3 million.

The Bobcats had been looking to work out a sign-and-trade deal with the Phoenix Suns or Golden State Warriors. Ely signing the qualifying offer will more than likely keep him in Charlotte this season.

The Bobcats now have a crowd at power forward with Emeka Okafor, Sean May, Othello Harrington and Ely. The Bobcats also now have 16 guaranteed contracts and a maximum of 16 roster spots.

However, Bobcats coach-general manager Bernie Bickerstaff said an overabundance of big men is not the worst thing. Last season, following a slew of injuries, the Bobcats were forced to play small forward Gerald Wallace inside over the last 20-30 games.
Well now I guess we can put all of the rumors and speculations to rest. Ely will be in Charlotte for 06-07

Please humor me, guys...............I'm still learning.............
With the Cats now having re-signed my heart throb (don't worry--my husband knows!!) the Cats have 16 guys. Doesn't that mean that someone will have to go bye-bye? I know that I read somewhere that even if Hollins goes to the developmental league he still counts toward the 15 so that Burleson, Carroll and some others need to take training camp seriously. Since the Cats need to release one player, any thoughts on who it might be???????

Most likely it will be Burleson, Robinson, Carroll or Hollins.
