The first player that the Wizards waived was 2011 draft pick Shelvin Mack. Mack was drafted out of Butler University and played minimally behind John Wall and Jordan Crawford. With the newest addition of Bradley Beal and the quality of play from AJ Price this pre-season, it was expected that Mack would be the odd-man out.
The next player released by the Wizards was big man Brian Cook. Cook was given a chance this pre-season when the Wizards signed him to a preseason contract. He was up against the likes of Trevor Ariza, Trevor Booker, Emeka Okafor, and also the anticipated return of star big-man Nene did not help his cause.
With the release of these two players, the Wizards are now down to their league-required 15 player roster. For the complete list of players, click on this link.
Question: What do you think of the Wizards roster this year? Do they have a chance to make some noise in the NBA this season? Or are they still early in the rebuilding stages?
