Hornets Waive Second Round Draft Pick

(New Orleans-AP) -- The New Orleans Hornets have waived center James Lang, a second-round draft pick.

Lang was placed on the injured list with back spasms in October and never appeared in a regular season game.

Lang averaged 1-point-5 points and less than one rebound per game in four preseason games. He was the 48th overall pick in the 2003 draft out of Central Park Christian High School in Brimingham, Alabama.
