Clippers Free Agency 2016: Clippers Officially Waive Devyn Marble

It's no surprise.

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Clippers announced Friday afternoon that they officially waived forward Devyn Marble:

Marble was acquired from the Orlando Magic in a deal for C.J. Wilcox and cash considerations.  The Clippers also received a future second-round pick.  When all was said and done, Marble was a Clipper for all of an hour and forty-four minutes (three more minutes than Wilcox played in his rookie season).  We'll have to see if that's the shortest tenure ever for a Clippers player.

The only reason that the Clippers ever orchestrated this trade was to save money by waiving Marble's fully non-guaranteed salary.  By doing this, they were able to move Wilcox's guaranteed contract worth $1.2 million for free, giving them an open roster spot and flexibility to avoid the luxury tax.
