DECEMBER 15: The Sixers have officially waived Broekhoff and Walton, per RealGM’s transactions log.
DECEMBER 14: The Sixers will part ways with a pair of players on their 20-man camp roster, according to Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer, who reports (via Twitter) that the club is waiving wing Ryan Broekhoff and guard Derrick Walton.
Broekhoff and Walton each signed one-year, minimum-salary contracts with the 76ers last month. Neither player had a guaranteed salary, however, so Philadelphia won’t be on the hook for dead money as a result of the cuts.
Broekhoff, 30, spent most of the last two seasons with the Mavericks after having played overseas for five years. The former Valparaiso sharpshooter averaged 4.0 PPG with a .403 3PT% in 59 games (10.7 MPG) for Dallas.
Walton, 25, made his NBA debut with Miami back in 2017/18. He spent most of the ’19/20 season with the Clippers, averaging 2.2 PPG and 1.0 APG in limited minutes (9.7 MPG) over 23 games for the club.
Philadelphia will be carry 18 players, including a pair on two-way deals, once Broekhoff and Walton are officially released. The battle for the final spot on the team’s 15-man regular season roster may come down to Vincent Poirier, who has a fully guaranteed salary, and Justin Anderson, who doesn’t.
