The Milwaukee Bucks will not offer a new contract to 10-year guard Sidney Moncrief, 31, who has been hindered by injuries in recent seasons.
Moncrief played in 62 games last season, 56 in 1987-88 and 39 in 1986-87, averaging 12.1 points per game.
"The salary cap, coupled with the age factor facing our ballclub, ultimately made the decision for us," Coach Del Harris said. "From a personal level, it is a great loss. From a franchise decision, it was one that was rather clear-cut."
