Sixers Waive Mikki Moore

The 76ers have waived Mikki Moore, the team announced today in a press release. The Sixers also confirmed that Xavier Silas has been released, as Silas himself tweeted yesterday.

Moore was signed by the Sixers at the same time the club announced that Andrew Bynum would be held out for three weeks for "precautionary measures" related to his knees. While it's probably premature to assume Philadelphia's decision to release Moore suggests anything about Bynum's health, it's certainly not a bad sign that the team was willing to cut loose an extra big man already.

With Moore and Silas no longer on the roster, the Sixers are now carrying 16 players. Maalik Wayns, who is on a partial guarantee, looks like the favorite to be the team's 13th man, while Dan Gadzuric, Damien Wilkins, and Devin Searcy will likely fight for the final two roster spots, depending on how many players the Sixers decide to carry.
