DENVER (AP) -- The Nuggets waived Antonio McDyess one week after they obtained him from Detroit along with Chauncey Billups and Cheikh Samb in a swap for Allen Iverson.
The move was expected as Denver tries to cut costs. McDyess' agent, Andy Miller, had said the chances of him playing in Denver were "very low to zero."
McDyess, who had two previous stints with Denver, hasn't appeared in any games for the Nuggets since the trade.
The 34-year-old forward has averaged 13.4 points and 7.7 rebounds per game in 12 seasons. He averaged 7 points and 4 rebounds in two games for Detroit before the trade.
Besides the Nuggets and Pistons, he has played for the New York Knicks and Phoenix Suns.
