Warriors reduce roster to 15, waive forward Taft
Taft was a second-round draft pick in 2005, but the former Pitt star never overcame injury problems to make a mark with the club. He played in just 17 games last season while struggling with chronic back pain, which required season-ending surgery on a herniated disc last March.
Taft couldn't play in any of the Warriors' preseason games this month for new coach Don Nelson because of muscle inflammation.
