MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) -- The Memphis Grizzlies waived veteran point guard Damon Stoudamire on Monday and plan to release him if he clears waivers.

The move, announced before Monday night's game against the Dallas Mavericks, had been expected for weeks.

Stoudamire, a former first-round pick in his 13th season out of Arizona, had been relegated to third-string status behind rookie Mike Conley, the fourth overall pick in last year's draft, and Kyle Lowry in his second year out of Villanova.

The 34-year-old Stoudamire has not played in 14 games, is averaging 7.3 points and 3.9 assists. His last action was against San Antonio on Dec. 30.

Stoudamire was signed by the Grizzlies as a free agent in 2005 after seven-plus seasons with Portland. He suffered a season-ending knee injury on Dec. 30, 2005, in Portland.
