Newble waived, Swift to have surgery

Posted by Jayda Evans

The Sonics waived F Ira Newble. Newble was acquired in a trade with Cleveland on Feb. 21. He logged 17 minutes in two games for Seattle and was released to clear roster space so that the Sonics could sign Mike Wilks to a 10-day contract. Both PG Luke Ridnour (right hamstring) and Earl Watson (flu) are probable for tonight due to injuries leaving the Supes with no true PG.

Wilks played for the Sonics the past two seasons, averaging 3.8 points and 1.6 assists in 57 total games.

Meanwhile, Sonics C Robert Swift met with Dr. Steve Lombardo in Los Angeles yesterday after suffering a torn lateral meniscus in the Feb. 21 game at Portland. Swift will undergo surgery on Tuesday. He is not expected to return to action this season following the procedure.
