The Lakers waived shooting guard Troy Daniels on Sunday, the team announced.

The move will open a roster spot up for the Lakers and free up Daniels for another opportunity. March 1 is the last day that a player can be waived and remain eligible for the playoffs with a new team. 

Daniels was seldomly used, averaging 4.2 points, 1.1 rebounds and 0.3 assists in 11.1 minutes over 41 games for the Lakers this season. 

"Absolutely one of the hardest decisions of my life," Daniels tweeted Sunday. "But it was best for ME..! I’ve been tested in my life before and I have came out the storm on my feet every time. What a pleasure it was to be apart of such a unbelievable organization of the @Lakers."
