Dionte Christmas was set to travel to Greece to resume his professional basketball career until the 76ers contacted his agent Sunday night. So instead of getting on the plane, the former Temple standout drove to Camden on Monday morning to sign with the Sixers. Then he worked out with the team, spoke to the media and was waived before folks in Philadelphia could congratulate him. Philadelphia Inquirer
Truth is, the Sixers never really had any intentions of signing him to their opening-day roster. The transaction was all about being able to own his rights in the NBA Development League. Christmas will have to play for the Sixers' D-League affiliate, the Delaware 87ers, assuming he elects to play in the league. Philadelphia Inquirer
The Phoenix Suns have exercised their 2017-18 options on guard Devin Booker and forward T.J. Warren. Booker ranked fifth in the NBA in scoring this preseason, averaging 19.6 points in five appearances, including a 34-point performance at Portland on October 7. InsideHoops
The Oklahoma City Thunder have waived Mitch McGary and Ronnie Price, the team announced Monday afternoon.

The Thunder have also waived non-guranteed players Kaleb Tarczewski and Chris Wright. Norman Transcript
Waiving Price means the Thunder will have to pay him the $2.6 million they owe in full for this year. They can decide on a later date either to spread his $2.4 million cap number for 2017-18 over three years or pay it in full next season. Norman Transcript
ďIíve always thought I was a point guard,Ē Embiid joked. ďSo thatís something that I want to do.Ē In all seriousness, Embiid worked on his ball-handling skills during his two-year rehab from foot injuries. Itís not that he wants to become an unconventional point guard, itís that he is striving to be an all-around threat. Embiid focused on recording his first assist, as an example, during the preseason.
