    Webber Out of philly

    76ers waive former All-Star Webber

    January 11, 2007


    PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Philadelphia 76ers waived forward Chris Webber on Thursday, making the five-time All-Star eligible to sign with another team after clearing waivers.

    The Sixers completed the paperwork to buy out the remaining 1 1/2 seasons on Webber's contract Wednesday, ending two disappointing years in Philadelphia. Once he clears waivers after 48 business hours, teams will be eligible to sign him.

    Webber missed 11 of the last 14 games, officially with foot and ankle injuries. He was due nearly $21 million this season and $22 million next season.

    Webber, the No. 1 overall pick in the 1993 draft, averaged 11 points and 8.3 rebounds in 18 games this season. He has career averages of 21.4 points and 10 rebounds.
    Great Move by sixers

    He'll probably be picked up by someone else (a contender) and play off the bench as a 6th or 7th man... It's weird remembering these guys coming into the league thinking they will be around forever and now they are getting old and washed up

    I read somewhere today that Webber may be coming to the Pistons and he is not very popular in this state with all the crap he pulled at scUM, while on the Fab Five.
