According to Mike Scotto of HoopsHype and USA TODAY, the Oklahoma City Thunder waived forward Usman Garuba. Garuba, a 21-year-old from Spain, is entering his third NBA season and looks to be a victim of the Oklahoma City’s roster crunch. He spent the last two seasons with the Houston Rockets.
Garuba has had a whirlwind of a summer from a transaction standpoint. On July 8, he was traded with TyTy Washington to the Atlanta Hawks, a salary dump maneuverer for Houston to clear all the necessary space to sign Fred VanVleet and Dillon Brooks.
