TORONTO (AP) — The Toronto Raptors have waived forward Rasual Butler.

Butler signed as a free agent Dec. 10 and appeared in 34 games, averaging 3.2 points and 1.9 rebounds in just more than 13 minutes of action.

In 604 games with Miami, New Orleans, Oklahoma City, Chicago, Toronto and the Los Angeles Clippers, the 10-year veteran has averaged 8.2 points per game.

"This move allows us the option to look at other wing prospects down the stretch of the season while affording Rasual the opportunity to potentially sign with and help a playoff-bound team," Raptors president and general manager Bryan Colangelo said in a statement.

The Raptors are in the midst of another disappointing season, sporting a 15-32 record heading into Friday night's home game against the New York Knicks.
