Default The Franchise Waived

http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/news;_yl...v=ap&type=lgns

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP)—The Memphis Grizzlies have waived three-time All-Star Steve Francis.

The Grizzlies had acquired him from Houston in December in exchange for a 2011 conditional second-round draft pick.

Francis, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound guard, did not appear in a game for Memphis or travel with the Grizzlies, though he did occasionally practice with the team.

Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace announced last week that the team was working on a buyout of Francis’ contract. The Grizzlies announced Tuesday that Francis was leaving.

The 31-year-old Francis averaged 18.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 6.0 assists in nine seasons with Houston, the Orlando Magic and New York Knicks. He was an All-Star in 2002, 2003 and 2004.
