Nets waive Outlaw, sign forward Udoka


Posted Dec 15 2011 6:15PM

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J, (AP) -- The New Jersey Nets have waived veteran forward Travis Outlaw and signed veteran free agent forward Ime Udoka.

General manager Billy King announced Thursday that Outlaw was released and designated their amnesty player in a move that should take roughly $7 million off the Nets' salary cap. The moves came a day after the Nets' bid to acquire Dwight Howard of Orlando fell apart.

Outlaw was signed to a five-year, $35 million contract last summer and appeared in all 82 games, starting 55. He averaged 9.2 points and 4.0 rebounds. The 8-year veteran has played in 482 NBA regular season games with the Trail Blazers, Clippers and Nets, averaging 9.5 points and 3.5 rebounds.

Udoka is a journeyman who has played for five teams in his seven-year NBA career, with his most recent stop being a 20-game stint in San Antonio last season where he had 14 points and 19 rebounds in 130 minutes of action.

Udoka has career averages of 5.2 points and 2.9 rebounds in 316 games. The undrafted Portland State product also has played for the Lakers, Knicks, Trail Blazers and Kings.

New Jersey posted a 24-48 record last season.

The NBA Family mourns the loss of legendary sports broadcaster Bob Wolff. Wolff called the Knicks' two title runs (1970, 1973) as well as Don Larsen's perfect game for the Yankees in the 1956 World Series and the Giants' overtime loss in the 1958 NFL championship game. In 2012, Wolff was cited by the Guinness World Records as having the longest career of any sports broadcaster (nearly 80 years). Wolff was inducted into the broadcasting wing of the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1995 and in 2008, recognized by the Basketball Hall of Fame with the Curt Gowdy media award.
