Trail Blazers Waive Former Warriors' Center Festus Ezeli

It's safe to say that things have gone completely opposite of what Festus Ezeli expected over the last year. 

After signing a two-year, $15 million deal last offseason to join Portland, Ezeli has been waived by the Trail Blazers, this according to the team's Twitter account. 

In August of 2016, Ezeli was ruled out for six weeks after undergoing a left knee infection, but two months later, he suffered a setback after the knee swole up.

His recovery got worse and in March of 2017, Ezeli underwent surgery on his left knee and was ruled out for the entire 2016–17 season.

Ezeli played three seasons with the Warriors, winning an NBA title in 2014-15. He averaged four points and four rebounds a game during his time with Golden State.
