We passed along a large number of moves yesterday as most teams cut their rosters down to the regular season limit. NBA.com’s Transactions Log has a few more that slipped under the radar involving players who were signed and waived to either ensure their affiliate rights or to make sure returning-rights players get bonuses:
- Celtics — guards Justin Bibbs and Dorian Pickens.
- Pelicans — guard Aubrey Dawkins.
- Suns — forwards Aaron Epps and Troy Williams.
- Jazz — forward Anthony Lawrence II.
Williams is the only one in the group with previous NBA experience. He played 21 games for the Kings last season and has appeared in a combined 72 games over the past three years. Bibbs signed a pair of two-way contracts with the Clippers in March, but didn’t see any game action.
