With the start of the regular season just less than a week away, Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr is applying the finishing touches on his team.
According to a recent press release, the team has decided to waive point guard Tyler Ulis along with three other players who were, unfortunately, all unable to make the final cut.

Ulis is the most prominent name among the recently-waived quartet. After being picked 34th overall by the Phoenix Suns in the 2016 Draft, the 22-year-old spent the last two seasons with the Phoenix Suns. During that span, the 5-foot-9 point guard averaged 7.6 points, 0.5 three-pointers, 1.7 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 0.9 steals, and 1.5 turnovers in 21.1 minutes per contest. He was waived by the Suns in June of this year, which allowed him to sign an Exhibit 10 contract with the Warriors.
Deyonta Davis is a 7-foot big man who was with the Memphis Grizzlies over the past two seasons. He played only 12.1 minutes off the bench, averaging 4.3 points and 3.2 rebounds per game for the Grizzlies.
As for Danuel House, he is a 25-year-old who was a former Texas A&M standout. The 6-foot-6 guard/forward spent last season with the Suns and put up 6.6 points, 0.7 three-pointers, 3.3 rebounds, and 1.1 assists in 23 games for the team.
Finally, Kendrick Nunn is a rookie that went undrafted back in June’s Draft. The Oakland alum signed a partially guaranteed deal with the Warriors in July, but similar to the other three aforementioned players, his services were deemed surplus by the Warriors.
