76ers waive Dionte Christmas, Bowman

This morning, the 76ers waived shooting guard Dionte Christmas and forward Brandon Bowman.

Bowman's dismissal was expected, but Christmas, the former Temple star, looked to -- possibly -- have a shot at making the team. Here was Christmas' line during the pre-season: 4 games played (of 7 possible). 7.5 minutes a game, 12.5 percent shooting from the field, 33.3 percent from three, 66.7 percent from the line, 1.8 points a game.

Just left Sixers practice at PCOM. Sixers GM Ed Stefanski spoke about the decision to cut Christmas. He said Christmas might be someone they look at down the line, but that right now they'd prefer to go with 13 and have a possible spot available for someone more able to immediately contribute.

The Sixers roster now stands at 13 players, all of whom have guaranteed contracts for this season.
