News: The Oklahoma City Thunder waived Chris Alexander and Derrick Byars as they continue to trim their roster for the start of the regular season.
Analysis: These players are not in a position to help Fantasy owners while they aren't part of any NBA rosters. Until that changes, leave them on the waiver wire.
News: The Sixers reached the 15-man roster limit to open the season by waiving rookie forward Derrick Byars, according to The Sports Xchange.
Analysis: Byars, a second-round pick from Vanderbilt, was stuck in a crowded position and slowed by a sprained ankle. He's apparently heading to Germany to play at least one season there. Obviously, keep him off all Fantasy rosters.
News: The Philadelphia 76ers signed a pair of rookies acquired in draft-night deals in June. Derrick Byars, the 42nd pick by Portland, and Herbert Hill, the 55th pick by Utah, both signed contracts with the 76ers on Tuesday.
Analysis: Both players project as NBA reserves and don't deserve consideration in Fantasy leagues.
