Warriors set to buy out Dajuan Wagner

San Francisco, CA (Sports Network) – The Golden State Warriors are set to
sever ties with guard Dajuan Wagner.

According to a report in the San Francisco Chronicle, the Warriors will buy
out the contract of the former first-round pick.

Wagner played in just one game for Golden State this season.

The former University of Memphis star was drafted sixth overall in 2002 by the
Cleveland Cavaliers, and averaged 13.4 points and 2.8 assists in his rookie
campaign.

He managed just 6.5 points per game in his second season, however, and
appeared in just 11 contests in 2004-05 due to an illness diagnosed as
colitis, an inflammation of the colon.

The 23-year-old played one season for Memphis, establishing a single-season
school record for points (762) while being named Conference USA Player of the
Year.
