Bullets waive Price, Tucker

April 20, 1995|By Jerry Bembry

LANDOVER -- Preparing their roster for the off-season, the Washington Bullets yesterday waived point guard Brent Price and forward Anthony Tucker.

"Both Brent and Anthony have done everything the Bullets could ask," said Washington general manager John Nash, whose team has two games remaining this season. "They will both have opportunities with other teams in the NBA."

A second-round pick in 1992, Price played two years with Washington but missed this entire season after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee while playing in the Doral Arrowwood Summer League in New York.

Price, brother of Cleveland Cavaliers guard Mark Price, had his best year last season, averaging 6.2 points in 65 games as a reserve.

Tucker, a rookie, played in 62 games, 13 as a starter. The Washington, D.C., native, who played at Wake Forest, averaged 3.9 points, 2.7 rebounds and 15.8 minutes.

He also joined Juwan Howard in February as the Bullets' representatives in this year's Rookie Game during All-Star Weekend in Phoenix.

The moves left the Bullets with eight available players for last night's game against Orlando.
