The Denver Nuggets have waived veteran shooting guard Gerald Green.
The Nuggets acquired Green from the Houston Rockets as part of the four-team trade between Denver, Houston, the Minnesota Timberwolves and Atlanta Hawks before the deadline.
The Nuggets have officially waived Gerald Green as expected. Denver currently has one open roster spot.

Green hasn’t played this season because of a broken left foot. He appeared in 73 games for the Rockets last season and averaged 9.2 points and 2.5 rebounds per contest while shooting 40.0 percent from the field, 35.4 percent from beyond the arc and 83.8 percent from the free-throw line.
The Rockets re-signed Green this past summer to a one-year deal. He was making $2.6 million this season.
The 34-year-old Green has career averages of 9.7 points and 2.5 rebounds in 658 games with the Boston Celtics, Minnesota Timberwolves, Dallas Mavericks, New Jersey Nets (now Brooklyn Nets), Indiana Pacers, Phoenix Suns, Miami Heat and Rockets.
Green came straight to the NBA from high school. He played at Gulf Shores Academy in Houston, Texas and made his NBA debut in 2006 with the Celtics.
The Nuggets are 36-16 on the season and in third place in the Western Conference standings.
