CLEVELAND (AP) - The Cleveland Cavaliers have made a “medically necessary release” of guard Eric Snow because of a career-ending knee injury.

Snow has been sidelined all season with an injured left knee. The Cavaliers made a medical insurance claim, which was approved by the NBA and the team will not have to pay Snow’s salary.

The 13-year veteran tore cartilage in his knee before last season. He appeared in 847 games and made the finals with Seattle, Philadelphia and Cleveland.

Snow has been working as a TV analyst for NBA TV. He hopes to pursue a coaching career.

Snow was acquired by the Cavs in 2004 from the Sixers in a trade for Kedrick Brown and Kevin Ollie. He only missed one game from 2004-07.
