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The Warriors also announced Sunday that the qualifying offer to forward Reggie Williams has been rescinded.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.
