Sixers waived Gerald Wallace

The Philadelphia 76ers have waived veteran swingman Gerald Wallace. All 30 NBA teams were notified at 5 p.m. Saturday that the 76ers have released Wallace without ever using him in a game.

Wallace will become an unrestricted free agent Tuesday if he clears waivers.

Wallace was acquired by Philadelphia in late July from the Golden State Warriors in exchange for forward Jason Thompson. The Warriors had Wallace on their books for only a few days, having acquired his cap-friendly contract in a swap that sent fellow former All-Star David Lee from Golden State to the Boston Celtics.
