Warriors Waive TJ Ford
The Golden State Warriors have waived guard T.J. Ford, the team announced today.
Ford, 28, was acquired on Thursday (March 15) from San Antonio, along with forward Richard Jefferson and a 2012 First Round pick, in exchange for Stephen Jackson. Earlier this week, Ford announced that he planned to take an indefinite leave of absence from basketball activities after suffering a series of neck and spine injuries during his eight-year NBA career, most recently on March 7 vs. New York, and is contemplating retirement. He has appeared in 429 career NBA games, averaging 11.2 points, 3.1 rebounds and 5.8 assists.
