Timberwolves waive Antonio Daniels

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Timberwolves have waived veteran guard Antonio Daniels.

He was acquired from New Orleans in September in a cost-saving move.

The Timberwolves gave permission to Daniels to seek a trade and did not

play him in the preseason.

Since no deal

could be completed, the young and rebuilding Wolves waived the 12-year

veteran. Daniels is in the final year of his deal that will pay him

$6.6 million this season.

The Wolves have a

similar agreement with veteran center Mark Blount, who will be waived

if no trade is completed before final rosters are due on Monday.
