Steve Francis Waived by Memphis

Steve Francis (1998-99) was waived by the Memphis Grizzlies this week:
The Memphis Grizzlies have waived three-time All-Star Steve Francis.

The Grizzlies acquired Francis from the Rockets in December in exchange for a 2011 conditional second-round draft pick.

Francis 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.
