Clippers waive forward Mark Madsen

August 21, 2009 |  4:01 pm

The Clippers released forward Mark Madsen almost a month after the team acquired him in a trade that sent Quentin Richardson to the Minnesota Timberwolves in exchange for Sebastian Telfair and Craig Smith, the Clippers announced today.

Although Madsen has had a limited role in his nine-year career, fans in Los Angeles remember him for his victory dance and speech at the Lakers' championship parades.

Clippers Coach and General Manager Mike Dunleavy didn't envision Madsen to have significant playing time, but had noted his reputation for being a positive influence in the locker room would help change the culture within the organization.
