In anticipation of Wednesday’s regular season opener against the Wiz, the Sixers waived Justin Anderson in his second stint as a Sixer. The 27-year-old wing totaled two points and three rebounds in 14 minutes during the preseason.
They also waived point guard Frank Mason.
Those moves bring the Sixers down to the regular-season maximum of 15 players on the roster and two players on two-way contracts. In Joel Embiid, Dwight Howard, Tony Bradley and Vincent Poirier, the team currently has four centers. That was also the case during the second half of last season, when Al Horford, Norvel Pelle and Kyle O’Quinn were behind Embiid.
Here is a look at the team’s depth chart as things stand:
PG: Ben Simmons, Shake Milton, Tyrese Maxey
SG: Seth Curry, Matisse Thybulle, Terrance Ferguson, Dakota Mathias (Two-way contract)
SF: Danny Green, Furkan Korkmaz, Isaiah Joe
PF: Tobias Harris, Mike Scott, Paul Reed (Two-way contract)
C: Joel Embiid, Dwight Howard, Tony Bradley, Vincent Poirier
