SAN ANTONIO (AP) _ The San Antonio Spurs waived forward Chucky Brown on Friday, granting his wish that he be traded or waived.

Brown started 27 of the first 28 games this season, but sat out the past month on the injured list. Team officials said he was suffering from back spasms.

Brown, in his 11th NBA season, spent last season with Charlotte. He signed with the Spurs as a free agent before this season for a guaranteed one-year contract worth $1 million.
