There was a thought that the 76ers would waive Rodney Williams or Gani Lawal before the cut-down deadline.
It turned out the Sixers released both players before Saturday's 5 p.m. league-mandated roster cut. The team could make an addition since it is one player under the 15-man limit.
Williams is an undrafted rookie free agent out of Minnesota. He missed the first five preseason games with a strained right hamstring. The swingman scored a total of two points and finished with three blocks, three rebounds, a steal, and an assist in the Sixers' final two preseason games.
The 6-foot-7, 205-pound high-flier averaged eight points and 1.2 rebounds in July for the Sixers' Orlando Pro Summer League team. Williams averaged 10.1 points and five rebounds as a power forward at Minnesota last season.
