Wizards waive Josh Childress, Pops Mensah-Bonsu, Xavier SilasPosted by Inside Hoops
Washington Wizards President Ernie Grunfeld announced today that the team has waived forwards Josh Childress and Pops Mensah-Bonsu and guard Xavier Silas.
Childress appeared in four preseason games averaging 2.0 points and 2.5 rebounds in eight minutes per contest.
Childress said he won’t forget his time with the team. “It was great,” said Childress to the Washington Post of the experience. “To be the first NBA game in Brazil, it was a big deal. I think culturally, not for myself, but for a lot of guys, it was a great experience for guys, to see a different world, a different culture, so the NBA did a great job with that. Without a doubt, over the past month, guys have bonded. There are lot of guys I did not know before I got here and now we’re friends and we’ll keep in touch throughout the year and in the summer.”
Mensah-Bonsu appeared in four preseason games averaging 0.5 points and 1.3 rebounds in five minutes per contest.
Silas appeared in three preseason games averaging 4.0 points in three minutes per contest.
The Wizards roster now stands at 15.
