More on Training Camp Cuts

Matt Velazquez: According to the team, Bucks are requesting waivers on Xavier Munford, who signed with Milwaukee a week ago.
The Denver Nuggets have waived veteran NBA forward Josh Childress, league sources told Def Pen Hoops. The move brings the Nuggets’ roster count down to 17 players. Childress confirmed the transaction in a text message on Wednesday night.
The Brooklyn Nets have requested waivers on guards Milton Doyle and Jeremy Senglin and forward Akil Mitchell. Doyle and Senglin originally signed as free agents with the Nets on Aug. 4, while Mitchell inked a free agent deal with Brooklyn on Sept. 24.
Memphis Grizzlies General Manager Chris Wallace today announced that the Grizzlies signed guard Durand Scott and waived guard Jeremy Morgan.
The roster spot of Cavs veteran forward Richard Jefferson is in jeopardy, according to The Athletic’s Jason Lloyd. The signing of Dwyane Wade gives the Cavs 16 fully guaranteed contracts, along with Kay Felder’s partial guarantee. Even if Felder is traded or released, the Cavs will have to rid themselves of a guarantee contract and Jefferson is a likely candidate, Lloyd continues. Jefferson, 37, has a $2.5MM contract but if he’s released it will cost the club approximately $10.5MM in luxury taxes since it is a repeat offender, Lloyd points out. A second-round pick may have to be packaged to move Jefferson, Lloyd adds.
Calvin Watkins: Mike D'Antoni told reporters today it was hard to release Pablo Prigioni. Expect to see Tyler Ennis get some minutes at point guard behind James Harden.
Phoenix Suns General Manager Ryan McDonough told ArizonaSports.com that Archie Goodwin had asked to be traded, and when the team was unable to move him before Monday’s roster deadline they waived him instead. “Not that these decisions are ever easy,” McDonough said, according to the report. “We felt like we got down to 16 really good, quality NBA players. Archie and his agents for the last few months asked us to accommodate a trade request. With that in mind, we told Archie and his agent we’d try to help him move to a team where he’d have an opportunity and play. Unfortunately, we weren’t able to work out a deal. This time of a year, it’s hard.”
Jake Fischer: The Detroit Pistons have claimed Beno Udrih off of waivers, according to a league source. The Pistons will waive Ray McCallum Jr.
Chris Haynes: Cleveland Cavaliers to waive veteran Dahntay Jones, league sources inform ESPN. DeAndre Liggins makes the squad.
Goodwin, 22, is expected to garner significant interest on the waiver wire. The 6-foot-5 Goodwin is a dynamic athlete and has shown flashes as a scorer and playmaker.
Keith Pompey: #Sixers will also waive James Webb III, Shawn Long and Cat Barber, according to source. They hold DLeague rights to Webb, Long & Barber.
Jake Fischer: Nik Stauskas has made the Philadelphia 76ers' 15-man roster, according to a league source. They will release Brandon Paul.
Adrian Wojnarowski: For now, Mitch McGary is hoping to resume career in China or Europe, sources tell @The Vertical. Wherever he plays, he has issues to resolve.
Bill Oram: Lakers announce they have waived Yi Jianlian. Here’s @Mark Medina’s story on how that played out. bit.ly/2eAk2iy
Calvin Watkins: Rockets waived forward PJ Hairston, forward Le'Bryan Nash and guard Gary Payton II. The Rockets took a cap hit of $543,471 with the release of Payton.
Jeff Goodman: Boston Celtics have waived RJ Hunter, source told ESPN.
After talks with team officials on Sunday, China star Yi Jianlian has asked the Los Angeles Lakers for his release, according to league sources. Sources told ESPN.com that with the Lakers facing roster cut-down decisions by Monday at 5 p.m. ET, Yi and his representatives requested that the Lakers let him go to pursue other opportunities, largely because the role he envisioned in L.A. didn't materialize.
The Lakers will formally waive Yi later Monday, sources said, and will still have to release one more player to get down to the league maximum of 15. But Yi's departure would appear to increase the odds that former All-Star forward Metta World Peace will make the opening night roster, as he did a year ago, with fellow veteran Thomas Robinson being another strong contender for a roster spot.
Mitch McGary has a guaranteed contract but little certainty. The third-year Thunder power forward is guaranteed a little more than $1.5 million this season. But he's coming off a foot injury and is suspended for the first 15 games of the regular season for twice violating the NBA's anti-drug program. McGary didn't play a minute in Oklahoma City's six preseason games, the first four due to his foot injury. He was available but didn't play in the final two. “If the opportunity doesn't present itself (to play), that's totally on me,” McGary said Sunday. “Just means I got to work a little bit harder to get where I want to go. Wherever that is — it may be here; I hope so — I just want to play. That's it.”
The Indiana Pacers announced Sunday they have waived 6-9 forward Jeremy Evans and 6-6 guard Julyan Stone. Evans played in two preseason games and did not score. Stone played in five games, scoring one point and averaging two rebounds per game.
The New Orleans Pelicans have until Monday afternoon to get their roster to the NBA-maximum 15 players and it appears Lance Stephenson and Alonzo Gee are in a two-man battle to land the final spot. Stephenson signed a $1.2 million contract with the Pelicans in September but only $100,000 is guaranteed. Gee signed a guaranteed $1.2 million veteran minimum contract to this summer to return to the Pelicans, but averaged only 9.2 minutes in five preseason games and just 1.4 points.
Justin Verrier: Pelicans officially waive Quinn Cook and Quincy Ford. Pels are fans of both but have a need for a bigger wing with Holiday, Evans, Qpon out.
Tim MacMahon: A source said C Jaleel Cousins, DeMarcus' younger brother, is expected to join the D-League Texas Legends if he clears waivers following his release from the Mavs. All of the Mavs' cuts are open to joining the team's D-League affiliate with the exception of G Kyle Collinsworth, who plans to play overseas. However, there is a decent possibility that final cut Jonathan Gibson gets claimed by another NBA team.
The Cavs waived forward John Holland on Saturday, reducing their roster to 16 players. General manager David Griffin has to pare down the roster to 15 player by 5 o'clock Monday.
Josh Robbins: The Magic have waived Nick Johnson and Ramon Galloway, leaving their roster at 15 players. Damjan Rudez & Arinze Onuaku made the team.
Chris Vivlamore: The Hawks have waived Josh Magette. Roster finalized at 15 players.
Chris Haynes: The Minnesota Timberwolves are releasing veteran forward Rasual Butler and guard Toure' Murry, league sources told ESPN. This move clears a nice path for John Lucas III to grab roster spot.
Ira Winderman: The Heat also will shortly waive Beno Udrih, party close to situation said. Waiting on that confirmation. So looks like McGruder sticks.
Michael Scotto: Milwaukee Bucks are waiving center Jaleel Roberts, a league source told Basketball Insiders. He's likely headed to the D-League.
Aaron Falk: The Memphis Grizzlies will cut Jordan Adams and DJ Stephens, league sources inform The Salt Lake Tribune
Scott Kushner: The #Pelicans will not make a final decision on Lance Stephenson until Monday. It's expected to be down to Stephenson or Gee for 15th spot.
Michael Scotto: Atlanta Hawks will waive point guard Josh Magette, a league source told Basketball Insiders. Roster will stand at 15 players after the move.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Rookie Tim Quarterman has won 15th spot on Portland, league source tells @TheVertical. Portland releasing Grant Jerrett and Greg Stiemsma.
Jabari Young: #Spurs have just waived Ryan Arcidiacono a league source just informed the Express-News. The Nova product could end up in Austin … we’ll see

In addition, the Grizzlies waived guard Kellen Dunham. Sampson (6-9, 214) has appeared in 147 career regular season games (72 starts) over his two-year NBA career with the Philadelphia 76ers and Denver Nuggets and holds career averages of 5.2 points and 2.4 rebounds in 15.6 minutes.

For the inquiries about his age ― and, by extension, the negative connotations that accompany being the oldest first-round prospect of his class ― Chris Duarte has an emphatic answer. “I’m 24 years old and my response is, if you want to win right now, go ahead and take me,” Duarte said Tuesday. “If you want to win six or eight years later, go ahead and draft an 18-year-old kid and develop him.”

Warriors viewing Josh Giddey as a strong possibility with No. 7 pick

According to a league source, the Warriors view Josh Giddey as a strong possibility with the No. 7 pick. At 6-foot-8, 185 pounds with preternatural passing ability and an improved jumper, he boasts an intriguing mix of ready-made NBA skills and long-term potential. Odds are that Giddey, who doesn’t turn 19 until Oct. 10, could fill a role for the Warriors next season as a secondary ballhandler off the bench.
