Blazers waive Ryan Gomes


According to several sources, the Blazers have announced that they will waive recently acquired forward Ryan Gomes. This is obviously a cost-cutting move for the Blazers, and will put them $1.9 million under the luxury tax. The Blazers acquired Gomes, along with the draft rights to Luke Babbitt, in a draft-day trade that sent Martell Webster to the Minnesota Timberwolves. 

Gomes has approximately $14 million left on his contract, which expires after the 2012-13 season.
