MILWAUKEE (AP) — The Milwaukee Bucks have waived forward Drew Gooden and designated him as their amnesty player.

Gooden had two years and about $13.4 million remaining on his contact. He still receives the money, but it doesn’t count against the Bucks for salary cap purposes.

Gooden signed with the Bucks in 2010, and the 11-year veteran averaged 11.3 points and 5.9 rebounds in 107 games.
