The Portland Trail Blazers have waived Andrew Nicholson using the stretch provision.

The Blazers will spread Nicholson's remaining salary over the next several seasons.

Nicholson was acquired by the Blazers as part of the Allen Crabbe trade.

Nicholson signed a four-year, $26 million deal with the Washington Wizards in 2016 and he was later included in the Bojan Bogdanovic deal.
