The Toronto Raptors have waived point guard Lorenzo Brown.

The Raptors signed Brown to a partly guaranteed contract worth around US$1.62-million, with US$800,000 guaranteed, before the season.

The remainder of the contract would have been guaranteed had Brown remained with the team after 5 p.m. on Monday.

He had a season-high 10 points in the Raptors 122-83 win at Chicago on Nov. 17.

He appeared in 40 games over two seasons with the Raptors, averaging 2.2 points, 1.2 rebounds and 1.0 assists.
