The Los Angeles Clippers announced today that the team has waived guard/forward Carlos Delfino and center Miroslav Raduljica. Delfino and Raduljica were acquired by the Clippers on August 26, 2014 in exchange for forward Jared Dudley and a protected 2017 first round draft pick. NBA.com

Yet according to a person with knowledge of the Clippers' situation, it's likely that Delfino - who is owed $3.25 million next season and has a team option for the 2015-16 campaign - will be waived using what's deemed the "stretch provision." The provision allows the payment of a player's contract (and the related salary cap hit) to be stretched out over several years, and would allow the Clippers to make another addition via free agency (or perhaps even two). Because the Clippers used their non-taxpayer midlevel exception on center Spencer Hawes in July, they are operating with a hard salary cap and have less than a million dollars remaining to work with because of it. The person spoke to USA TODAY Sports on the condition of anonymity because the moves had not yet been made. USA Today Sports
