After just 22 games with the team, the NBA D-League's Utah Flash waived former BYU standout Lee Cummard on Tuesday.

Cummard started in seven games for the Flash, but played more than 25 minutes only once. He averaged five points, 1.9 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game.

Known for his long-distance shooting at BYU, Cummard made 16 of his 34 three-pointers (47 percent) with the Flash.

The move comes as a mild surprise locally—the Flash, who play their games only five miles away from BYU's Marriott Center, heavily publicized Cummard's signing as the season began.

Cummard's basketball future is uncertain. After not being selected in last June's NBA draft, Cummard signed with German League team Alba Berlin.

In September, the team deemed Cummard "unfit" to play and released him, enabling the Flash to make an offer.
