In what is a mild surprise, the Warriors announced Friday they have waived guard Seth Curry and center Dewayne Dedmon.
Apparently, the Warriors preferred to keep the last roster spot open.
All three were expected to join the Santa Cruz Warriors, Golden State’s affiliates in the NBA Development League. There, they will get the playing time they need to develop.
Joe Alexander was also waived. He did not appear in a preseason game due to a tibial stress reaction in his left leg. He was never expected to play but was invited to camp so he could be allocated to the Santa Cruz Warriors.
Curry appeared in six preseason games. He totaled 13 points and 6 assists in 43 minutes.
Dedmon appeared in five preseason games, averaging 10.3 minutes. He totaled 17 points, 20 rebounds and 5 blocks in his action.
It must be said, the Warriors are hoping Dedmon goes to the D-League. If he plays in the D-League it will be for the Santa Cruz squad. But if another NBA team comes knocking, or he decides to go overseas, he’s free to do that. And with his raw skills, that is possible.
The Warriors roster currently stands at 14 players.
