EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -The New Jersey Nets waived guard David Wesley on Thursday, less than a week after the team traded for the 14-year veteran.
The Nets acquired Wesley on Monday from New Orleans for swingman Bernard Robinson, center Mile Ilic and cash considerations. At the time, the Nets said they told Wesley not to report to the team and that they would assume the guaranteed portion of his $1.75 million contract.
New Jersey used the trade to get under the league's luxury tax level of $67.87 million.
Wesley averaged 12.5 points and 4.4 assists during 14 seasons in the NBA, including the 1993-94 campaign with the Nets. He played in 35 games for the Cleveland Cavaliers last season, averaging about 10 minutes.
