The 76ers waived forward Trent Plaisted and guard Chris Quinn on Thursday, trimming their roster to 14 players for the start of the season.
All remaining players have guaranteed contracts.
Plaisted, a forward-center from Brigham Young, and Quinn, a point guard with NBA experience, were considered long shots to make the roster, which can have a maximum of 15 players.
The Sixers also announced that they exercised a third-year option on point guard Jrue Holiday and a fourth-year option on big man Marreese Speights. Both players are under contract through the 2011-12 season.
