The New Orleans Pelicans waived forward Darius Miller and forward/center Patric Young, the team announced Sunday afternoon.
Yahoo Sports reported Sunday that the Pelicans had a tryout with free agent forward Dante Cunningham this weekend, and the team is “strongly” considering signing him soon. Cunningham, a second-round pick out of Villanova in 2009, has averaged 6.2 points and 3.9 rebounds in his career.
Cunningham, who played for the Timberwolves last year, was arrested for domestic assault in April in Minneapolis. Charges were dropped in August after police found “no proof beyond a reasonable doubt for the charged offense.”
A team source reached Sunday night by The Advocate would neither confirm nor deny the team has signed Cunningham.
Miller played in five games with one start this season, averaging 0.4 points and 0.2 rebounds in 8.6 minutes. Selected 46th overall in the 2012 draft, he has averaged 3.1 points and 1.3 rebounds in 102 career games.
Young, who signed as an undrafted free agent before this season, played in seven preseason games. He had not appeared in the regular season.
After losing back-to-back games at Atlanta and Washington on Friday and Saturday, the Pelicans return to the Smoothie King Center for a 7 p.m. Tuesday matchup with Oklahoma City.
