The Sixers have waived Dan Gadzuric, the team has announced. The 10-year veteran was in camp on a non-guaranteed minimum-salary deal, but he hasn't played in any of the team's preseason games so far.
Gadzuric appeared in just two games last year after the Knicks signed him for the final week of the season, and went scoreless in 13 total minutes. New York made use of his contract, which included a non-guaranteed season in 2012/13, over the summer, shipping his rights to the Blazers in a sign-and-trade for Raymond Felton. The Blazers promptly waived Gadzuric, and the Sixers made him one of four signees who came aboard right before training camp began. One of those four, Xavier Silas, was waived last week, leaving Damien Wilkins and Devin Searcy as the last two remaining.
Gadzuric's exit brings the team's roster down to 15 players, with 13 on guaranteed deals, including Maalik Wayns, whose contract includes a $75K buyout. Last night, Tom Moore of PhillyBurbs.com reported that the Sixers are likely to get down to 14 players by the start of the regular season, with Searcy next on the chopping block. He confirms via Twitter today that Wilkins has the best among the team's camp invitees of making the opening-night roster.
