Raptors Waive Julyan Stone

8:22pm: In addition to the new teams mentioned, the Raptors remain a possibility to sign Stone, per Charania.

WEDNESDAY, 5:53pm: Stone has cleared waivers and is now discussing a possible deal with the Sixers, Bucks, and Kings, a league source tells Shams Charania of RealGM (Twitter link). Presumably, any deal would slot Stone on a team’s training camp roster and be partially or non-guaranteed, although that’s just my speculation at this point.

MONDAY, 2:49pm: The Raptors have waived point guard Julyan Stone, the team announced (on Twitter). Stone’s non-guaranteed minimum-salary contract was to have become fully guaranteed if he remained on the roster through today, so Toronto saves some cash and some room under the tax line with the move.

Stone’s relationship with Raptors GM Masai Ujiri dates to their time together with the Nuggets, with whom the 25-year-old spent the first two seasons of his career. Still, even news that fellow reserve guard Nando De Colo had turned down Toronto’s offer to accept a deal to play in Russia wasn’t enough to keep Stone on the roster as the Raptors seek to re-sign Greivis Vasquez and stay below the tax threshold.

Next is buyck, the waive clause on fields (unless fields is packaged in a deal to free up cap for the next seasons cap for whatever team takes him), perhaps a sign and trade with amir johnson , tyler hansborogh and a future first rounder/ 2 second round picks for greg monroe….. or a sign and trade of vasquez and amir with or without picks for Larry Sanders…

I wish, fields and his cap gotta go … his 6.25 can be paid in three years by 2 million per due to the waive exception and hopefully some more cap and a nice vet wing or a surprise player alrrafy on roster or rookie would be nice, I’m taking care of my all star 16 tickets
