CLIPPERS: Clippers Waive McNeal and Roberson

5

When the Clippers announced that Kareem Rush, Anthony Roberson, Jerel McNeal and Taj Gray were being added to their training camp roster on non-guaranteed contract, most of the eyes focused on Rush. Gray was the first cut, followed out the door today by Roberson and McNeal. I must admit, I was initially intrigued by Roberson, but Rush has the longer resume, and more importantly the longer frame. There just wasn't any sense to keeping either Roberson or McNeal, given that they are essentially undersized two guards, not true point guards. Rush on the other hand, can play either the two or three, a spot where the Clippers still look thin to me. He's outplayed Ricky Davis in pre-season (55% from the field, over 60% from three, compared to 41% and 36% for Ricky), but has he outplayed him enough to justify the final roster spot? My guess is no, and that the Clippers will enter the regular season with the 14 guaranteed contracts they have now, but it's not quite the foregone conclusion I once thought it was.
