Sixers Cut Two Players Ahead of Season Opener

The Philadelphia 76ers are reportedly waiving guard Isaiah Joe and big man Charles Bassey, less than a week before their 2022-23 regular season opener versus the Boston Celtics on October 18, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Philadelphia's final roster spot is still up for grabs and unfortunately, neither Joe nor Bassey will make the cut.

Joe, who was selected 49th overall by the Sixers in the 2020 NBA Draft, has appeared in a total of 96 games for Philly over the past two seasons.

Bassey, meanwhile, was the Sixers' second-round draft pick, taken 53rd overall in 2021. He appeared in just 23 games for Philadelphia in his rookie season.
