HOUSTON — The Houston Rockets have waived forward Luis Scola.

The team used its amnesty clause on Scola, General Manager Daryl Morey confirmed Friday.

A fan favorite in Houston, the 6-foot-9 Scola averaged 14.5 points and 7.7 rebounds in five seasons with the Rockets. He’s due to make $21 million over the next three seasons.

The Rockets have torn apart their 2011-12 roster as they reportedly push Orlando to send them All-Star center Dwight Howard. Cutting Scola would allow Houston to absorb multiple undesirable contracts from Orlando in a potential deal.
