In a roster-clearing move, rarely-used guard Jared Cunningham was reportedly traded Wednesday by the LA Clippers to the Philadelphia Sixers.
Philly is expected to release the 23-year old.
Cunningham, the 24th overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft, averaged less than two points in limited burn this season.
Per Yahoo! Sports:
The Clippers have been working to clear roster space to explore more potential deals to improve their bench, league sources said.
Trading Cunningham spares the Clippers a cap hit. If they would’ve waived him, he would’ve counted against the cap based on the number of days he had been with the team.
It is unlikely the Sixers will keep Cunningham, who needs to be waived by Wednesday afternoon to avoid guaranteeing the balance of his $915,000 salary for the 2014-15 season.
