Suns Waive Terrico White, Kyle Casey

4:13pm: The moves are official, the team announced.

3:20pm: The Suns have waived shooting guard Terrico White and small forward Kyle Casey, Paul Coro of The Arizona Republic reports (Twitter link). Both players were inked to non-guaranteed pacts, so Phoenix won’t be responsible for any funds as a result of these moves. The Suns’ roster count now stands at 15 players, the regular season limit, putting Henry Sims and Cory Jefferson, the team’s two remaining players with non-guaranteed salaries, in a strong position to stick for opening night.

White, 25, last season with Enisey Krasnoyarsk of Russia, where he averaged 11.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 28.3 minutes per game, with 37.2% three-point shooting. He’s also played in Israel, Serbia and Turkey.

Casey, 25, spent the past season playing for Helios Domzale of Slovenia, averaging 12.6 points and 7.2 rebounds in 28.5 minutes per game. That was more playing time than he saw as a senior for Harvard in 2013/14, when he put up 9.7 PPG and 5.6 RPG in 22.0 MPG. At 6’7″, he averaged 1.2 blocks per game as a college senior but fewer than one block per contest in Slovenia last year, and he shot less than 30% from three-point range in both seasons. Casey played for the Nets summer league team in 2014 but didn’t take part in NBA summer league this year.
