Dime Magazine dropped some big news on Dante Cunningham today, it seems that the forward from Villanova, a restricted free agent, has decided not to accept the Charlotte Bobcats' qualifying offer. Cunningham thrived with the Michael Jordan-owned franchise after being moved to small forward (he started his career in Portland as a power forward), earning 9 starts in 22 games and averaging 9 points and 4 rebounds per game.
Recent additions of Corey Maggette, Derrick Brown and Reggie Williams create a bit of a crowd for Charlotte at Dante's position. Dante has apparently opted to explore his option elsewhere. Though not mentioned in the text of the article, the headline from DIME suggests that Cunningham has received offers from other teams, which may give him some confidence that he will reach a suitable deal somewhere.
Like Kyle Lowry, who agreed to a deal with the Cavaliers as a restricted free agent not long ago, the Bobcats will have an opportunity to match whatever offer Cunningham ultimately selects.
