Warriors waive Bell under new amnesty provision

Posted Dec 11 2011 6:57PM

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- The Golden State Warriors have waived guard Charlie Bell under the new amnesty provision, wiping his remaining contract from the salary cap and avoiding any luxury tax penalties.

The Warriors also announced Sunday that the qualifying offer to forward Reggie Williams has been rescinded. The moves give Golden State more space to sign another free agent. Teams can only use the new amnesty clause on one player a year.

Bell never reported for training camp. Authorities said Bell showed up intoxicated at a Thursday court date for a drunken driving arrest in Michigan. He already is facing a one-game suspension without pay after pleading no contest to reckless driving in California.

Bell appeared in 19 games for the Warriors last season, averaging 1.7 points in 9 minutes per contest.

The NBA family mourns the loss of Bob Bass, a two-time NBA Executive of the Year who spent 20 seasons with the San Antonio Spurs and nearly a decade as General Manager of the Charlotte Hornets, including two seasons in New Orleans. During his 20 seasons with the Spurs, most of which were spent in the front office, the team advanced to the playoffs 17 times, including three trips to the conference finals. He held several different titles with the Spurs, including general manager, vice president of basketball operations, assistant to the chairman, head coach, and assistant coach. Bass, who was named NBA Executive of the Year in 1990, left San Antonio in 1994 and was hired as the general manager of the Charlotte Hornets, who made the playoffs in seven of his nine seasons. In 1997, Bass earned his second NBA Executive of the Year honor. Bass retired in 2004.
