Camp Cuts Currently On NBA Rosters

When Seth Curry signed his 10-day contract with the Suns today, he became a member of a not-so-exclusive club. Players that teams let go at the end of the preseason to trim to the 15-man regular season roster limit are usually lightly regarded, but Curry is now one of 23 camp cuts currently occupying a place on an NBA roster. That means approximately 15% of camp invitees who didn’t make it to opening night have made their way back to the league. The percentage would be even higher if we included those who appeared on regular season rosters earlier this season but are no longer in the Association.

That total of 23 also doesn’t count either Jordan Hamilton or Chris Johnson, since both were waived in advance of opening night but claimed off waivers by other teams. Many of the 23 are on 10-day contracts, while others have already established themselves as fixtures for the team. There’s no name more prominent among them than Hassan Whiteside, who slipped through the hands of the Grizzlies at the end of the preseason and again in November before the Heat snapped him up. Michael Beasley is another Grizzlies camp refugee who’s now with the Heat, hoping his second 10-day contract will lead to a deal for the rest of the season and a Whiteside-like breakthrough.
