The Lakers waived veteran point guard Chris Duhon on Saturday, according to a team release.
Duhon would have earned $3.75 million for the coming season had the Lakers kept him under contract into July.
Instead, Duhon will receive $1.5 million of his salary that was fully guaranteed.
The Lakers saved more than $2.25 million in salary -- possibly up to $9 million in luxury tax.
Instead, he made 46 appearances, including nine starts. Duhon averaged 2.9 points and 2.9 assists a game and shot 36.3% from three-point range.
As a starter, Duhon averaged 6.9 points and 5.4 assists and shot 42.1% from beyond the arc.
