The Boston Celtics announced today that they have waived forward/center David Lee.

“We thank David for his contributions to our organization and wish him nothing but the best in the future,” said President of Basketball Operations Danny Ainge.

Lee will become an unrestricted free agent if he clears waivers (as expected). Prior to being waived, Lee was the Celtics’ highest-paid player this season since his 2015-16 salary was $15,493,680.

The veteran big man appeared in 30 contests for the Celtics this season. He averaged 7.1 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.8 assists in 15.7 minutes per game over that span.
