Minnesota Timberwolves waive center Mark Blount
The Minnesota Timberwolves have waived veteran center Mark Blount.
The team announced the move on Monday.
The Timberwolves acquired Blount from Miami last August in a trade for Quentin Richardson, a deal they made merely for salary cap purposes. Blount did not appear in a game for Minnesota this season.
The 7-foot center has played in 605 games during his nine-year NBA career. He spent parts of 2005-06 and 2006-07 in Minnesota, where he averaged 11.6 points and 5.7 rebounds in 124 games.
Blount has also played for Boston and Denver.
