The Sixers have waived Temple product Antywane Robinson to trim the roster to 15 players.

The 6-8 Robinson appeared in three preseason games for the Sixers, playing a total of 15 minutes. The roster now stands at 15.

Robinson, who spent four years on North Broad Street, was an Atlantic 10 second-teamer as a senior. In 116 career games played for the Owls, he had 85 steals to 54 turnovers.

He has yet to appear in an NBA regular-season game since going undrafted in 2006, but played preseason games for the Atlanta Hawks in 2007. After being waived by the Hawks, Robinson joined the Sioux Falls Skyforce of the D-League before playing overseas for Elan Bearnais Pau-Orthez of the French League.

The Sixers next face Cleveland on Wednesday night in a preseason game.
