Sixers Waive Ronald Roberts

MONDAY, 11:38am: The move is official, the team announced as it confirmed the signing of Furkan Aldemir.

SUNDAY, 4:09pm: The Sixers will waive Ronald Roberts to make room for the newly signed Furkan Aldemir, according to Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer (via Twitter).  It was a brief stay in the City of Brotherly Love for Roberts, who was signed just two days ago.

Roberts, 23, spent training camp with the team in October after going undrafted out of St. Joseph’s this past June.  Philadelphia gave the Adam Pensack client a partial guarantee of $35K when it signed him for camp and retained his D-League rights after waiving him before opening night. It’s unclear if there was any guaranteed salary involved with Roberts’ latest deal.

The 6’8″ power forward put up 17.5 points and 11.8 rebounds in 31.8 minutes per game for the D-League affiliate of the Sixers so far this season.  He did not see the floor for the Sixers’ varsity squad, however.  With Roberts out and Aldemir in, the 76ers’ roster remains at 15.
