Trail Blazers To Waive Ronnie Price

The Trail Blazers had been carrying 15 players heading into the trade deadline, so they'll need to waive a player to clear a roster spot for Eric Maynor. According to Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com, Ronnie Price will be the player released by the Blazers (Twitter link).

Haynes notes (via Twitter) that Price is dealing with a severe right ankle sprain, but he does plan to return to action this season, so he could find another NBA job once he clears waivers hits free agency.

Price, 29, had averaged 2.7 PPG and 1.9 APG in 39 appearances for Portland this season. His minimum-salary contract was guaranteed, so he'll receive that salary and the Blazers will assume the cap hit.
