The Portland Trail Blazers have waived big man Pau Gasol, he said on Wednesday.
Gasol, 39, has not been able to resume his left foot after surgery.
Gasol and the Blazers are working on details of a coaching role for the Hall of Famer of the future. Gasol has two championships and six All-Star appearances during his 18 NBA seasons. He stays in Portland to rehab.

He signed with the Milwaukee Bucks after a buyout with the San Antonio Spurs last season but only played three matches with Milwaukee before a season-ending foot injury. Gasol ended the campaign after playing just 30 games, averaging a career-low 3.9 points and 4.6 rebounds.
Gasol signed an annual agreement with the Blazers in July.
He has also played with the Memphis Grizzlies, Los Angeles Lakers and Chicago Bulls, and he had an outstanding FIBA career with the Spanish national team.
