The Raptors announced that they have waived guard Jerel McNeal and forward Chris Wright. McNeal played in just one preseason game, while Wright was a DNP-CD for all six games. Toronto's roster now stands at 16.
Both players hooked on with the Raptors roughly one month ago on non-guaranteed deals. Wright, 24, appeared in 24 games for the Warriors in his rookie season but notched just 186 minutes in total. The 6'8" forward also played in 13 D-League games, averaging 17.8 PPG and 8.8 RPG.
McNeal, 25, has never appeared in an NBA game despite signing a 10-day contract with the Hornets in 2011. The former Marquette standout averaged 19.4 PPG in 47 games for the D-League's Rio Grande Valley Vipers in 2010/11 and spent last season in the Italian league.
