 WASHINGTON (AP) -Memphis Grizzlies guard Damon Stoudamire was in uniform for a game against the Washington Wizards on Friday night, but he wasn't expected to play. Stoudamire hasn't played since Dec. 30 - 12 straight games - and continues to await the buyout of his contract.
As he sat on the bench about 90 minutes before the game, he said there wasn't much to report.
``Not as of this hour. I haven't heard anything. It's still the same,'' Stoudamire said.
Stoudamire is owed $4.6 million for next season - a figure that would be cut in half if he plays in fewer than 55 games or averages less than 20 minutes a game this season. In the 29 games he's played this season, the 13-year veteran is averaging 7.3 points per game - about half his career average and 3.9 assists. This season, he's making $4.3 million.
``I want it done as soon as possible,'' Stoudamire said. ``But, you've got to be patient. You've got to wait.''
Stoudamire hasn't commented on where he'd like to play next.
``If I'm able to get the buyout, I'll figure all that out. It's kind of premature to talk about destinations.''
