Wizards Waive Al Thornton

by March 01, 2011

With a “logjam” at the SF slot, the Wizards apparently have seen enough of the 6-7 swingman: “Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that the team has waived forward Al Thornton after coming to an agreement on a contract buyout. ‘The additions of Rashard Lewis and Mo Evans combined with Josh Howard’s return from injury gave us a logjam at the small forward spot,’ said Grunfeld. ‘Coming to terms on a contract buyout with Al was mutually beneficial, as it allows us to clear space in the rotation and allows him the chance to pursue an opportunity with another team.'”
