Busy news morning on this Thursday for the Wolves...

Forward Dante Cunningham was arrested shortly after 6 a.m. by police in Medina on suspicion of domestic assault. He is not traveling with team on its afternoon flight to Miami today.

Our news story is here.

The team waived little-used veteran point guard A.J. Price this morning, a decision that was made, I'm told, last night before the Cunningham arrest but which clears the way to sign a player to Price's now vacant roster spot for the season's remaining eight games.

It's likely, depending how the Cunningham situation plays out, that player will be a power forward or combo forward type.

Just as FYI: Cunningham's contract -- a $2.2 million salary -- expires after this season and he will be an unrestricted free agent in July. His return next season was a question before Thursday morning's arrest.

Price underwent an appendectomy March 9 and recently was cleared to play again but hadn't made it off the inactive list on game nights.
