The Bobcats made a one-year qualifying offer worth nearly $1 million to Dante Cunningham on Monday that makes the reserve forward a restricted free agent. The move came less than two months after Cunningham was charged with possession of marijuana following a traffic stop in suburban Philadelphia in which police said they also found a pellet gun in violation of a local ordinance. Charlotte acquired the former Villanova player from Portland in a February trade that sent forward Gerald Wallace to the Trail Blazers. The Bobcats moved the 6-foot-8 Cunningham from power forward to small forward and he thrived, averaging 9 points and 4 rebounds in 22 games while showing a consistent mid-range jumper. Before the final game of the season, owner Michael Jordan said they wanted to re-sign the 2009 second-round pick. But the franchise became more cautious following his arrest.
