Source: Sixers release Wyatt, White, Koshwal, Blue

As the Sixers prepare for the season, coach Brett Brown has released for guys fighting for the final roster spots.

Source: Sixers release Wyatt, White, Koshwal, Blue


The Sixers have released four players, a source told the Daily News. They are Temple product Khalif Wyatt, forward Royce White, forward Mac Koshwal and guard Vander Blue.

There are a couple of surprises there. It was generally thought that Blue and Wyatt were competing for one of the roster spots. But when coach Brett Brown gave them very limited minutes in the final few preseason games, it appeared that maybe neither had won the battle.

Perhaps the bigger surprise is the release of White. At 6-9, 265 pounds and with a versatile game, he appeared to be an intriguing part of where this team is heading. But anxiety issues make flying on the team charter always iffy for him, and he didn’t appear to have the best of attitudes, something that is high on the list for Brown, as he oversees his first roster as a head coach.
