Sixers waive Derrick Byars

The Philadelphia 76ers waived guard/forward Derrick Byars Monday.

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.

The Sixers roster now stands at 15 players.
