Antonio DavisThe Toronto Raptors announced Thursday they have waived centre Antonio Davis.

"After receiving a second opinion on Antonio's lingering back problems, it is very unlikely that he would return to competitive action this season with the Raptors," said Bryan Colangelo, president and general manager of the Raptors. "After lengthy discussions with Antonio regarding his physical condition and his general sense of disappointment over his personally difficult year, we have concluded that it's in the best interest of both the organization and Antonio Davis to simply release him at this late point of the season."

Davis had missed the past 12 games after suffering a back injury in the third quarter February 27 in Miami. He was acquired in a February 3 trade with New York and appeared in eight games with Toronto averaging 4.4 points and 4.5 rebounds in 23.9 minutes. Davis, who had previously played with the Raptors from 1999-2004, is the franchise’s all-time leading rebounder with 2,839.

InsideHoops.com Editor Says: If he's really banged up, no one will sign him. Without bothering to calling any sources I'll just speculate that Davis doesn't play again this season and tries to sign with the Bulls this summer to finish out his career in Chicago. Or, he may just retire.
