The Sixers waived center Darryl Watkins, who was acquired in a three-team trade last Wednesday.

The Sixers obtained Watkins from New Orleans and forward Dorell Wright from Golden State while sending the rights to Edin Bavcic to the Hornets, who also traded Jarrett Jack to the Warriors.

In 14 career games across two seasons with Sacramento and New Orleans, Watkins has averaged 2.5 points and 2.8 rebounds in 12.0 minutes per game.

Watkins, 6-10, went undrafted out of Syracuse in 2008 and has played for numerous teams in summer leagues and training camps along with several teams overseas.
