Roster now stands at 15. Wonder if Lou is still in limbo or if Doc wants to keep a full roster.

Gbye Brandon, wish you luck maybe for another NBA team.

Lou wasn't impressive, let's see..

Damn that really sucks Davies showed the same energy on defense as Lou but was much more active on offense and higher potential. Lou really does not do anything to really stand out so far and on top of that Hollins and Mullens are still having issues being quality time players.

Wish the team could hit the refresh button on the bigs during the off season. Jamison has grown on me for effort alone but with Davies gone he is the only big that plays hard and yet focused.

I would take Brian "color me beard" Skinner and Paul "captain charisma" Davis even right now.

I agree about Reggie...

Man, I knew this would be tough. I really liked Davies. He seemed like a good young man and has skills. While I was less impressed with Amundson in the preseason, I can see why we decided to keep him. We need some toughness and perhaps he's more of a regular season gamer than a preseason gamer. Good luck to Brandon!

Do I smell waiving Lou and a free agent?

Seems unlikely, but I guess its possible. It would have to be a FA that Doc feel pretty good about to go that route instead of keeping a guy who has been around all training camp and preseason. That said, Amundson has been pretty unimpressive.

That is the first really stupid move we've made. The guy was putting an effort and I fully expect him back on a 10-day contract later in the season unless he signs somewhere else before that.

Bummer about Brandon being waived. I guess he didn't impress enough to hang on to a roster spot. I hope another team picks him up.

I'm sure Lou must've made a better impression in practice than he has in the preseason games.

Same here. I have huge trust in our coaching staff and front office.

Well the spots are limited now that Malik got injured so we had to keep him.

Wayns took his spot. DAvies will catch on somewhere, hopefully doesn't come back to haunt us.

I highly doubt that will be the case.

You realize were all upset about a guy who wouldn't get much if any playing time right? It's like being bummed about trey thompkins. We should only really care about the people who are going to be playing and let the practice guys be just that. We won't have to worry about him coming back to haunt us bc he won't be a starter or even a 2nd string guy on any teams. This is barely news for us

Lou is tougher. We need that.

Haven't been entirely impressed with Lou either, and I was one of his biggest advocates. Hopefully the front office saw something that we didn't. That said, Davies didn't really impress me all that much either. Didn't really care either way, but I wouldn't have minded getting rid of Mullens instead tbh.

I'm not sure that that many of us are upset, I'm certainly not.

I'm only slightly bummed, but more due to me wanting Davies to prove himself worthy of the spot in a big way. Lou is a vet which they know what he brings, and Davies is an unknown. It would have been nice for him to prove himself to be a future rotational guy, which he showed glimpses.

I do think it's important to pick up guys that will have a solid future with our team, this will save in terms of cap room and you never know what kind of gems we might find. The good thing is like the majority of us, I believe that Reggie is definitely that gem or at the very least a solid rotational guy.

We have no two way bigs off the bench its not impossible if he continued to work hard he would crack the rotation. There is also very little to no bench potential with the bigs adding to the fact they are all speciality players none of them have shown to excel at their craft yet. All the concerns coming in and through training camp hold true. Hollins can't stop fouling, Mullens shot is inconsistent, Amundson very limited offense, and Jamison poor defense.

There really is no clear cut leading pair off the bench type bigs.

Looks like Brandon was signed by the 76ers. Good for him.
