Default Derrick Byars waived by the Sixers...

Quote:
Philadelphia 76ers President Billy King announced today that the team has waived guard/forward Derrick Byars.

Byars, a rookie from Vanderbilt, averaged 2.0 points and 2.0 rebounds in one preseason appearance with the Sixers. Originally selected by Portland with the 42nd overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft, Byars was acquired by Philadelphia in a draft night trade (6/28/07) for the rights to Petteri Koponen (30th overall pick) and cash considerations.

I thought of him as one of the more underrated prospects in this last draft. Even wanted him at no.20 for the Heaters.

Shocked that he hasn't impressed in the least bit. Probably on his way overseas...

so they wanted both of our 1st rounders so they could draft a guy, trade him for Byars on draft night, and then cut him?

Byars got caught in a numbers game. He'll be on another team in a week or two.
