Friday morning the Rockets announced that the team has waived guards Will Cummings and Denzel Livingston, forward Chris Walker and center Jeremy Tyler.

Per Jonathan Feigen the roster is now at 16 players, still left on the roster among potential cuts are bigs Arsalan Kazemi and Joshua Smith.

It should be noted head coach Kevin McHale has said the roster spot is Joshua Smith's to lose.

But don't feel bad for the four waived players, their NBA careers are not over. Most likely they will all be on the Rockets D-League affiliate the Vipers.

Kazemi was claimed off waivers and it's likely McHale just wanted one more game to see how he'll perform against NBA competition tonight. Not to brag, but The Dream Shake's own Danny Emerman predicted that Smith would snag the 15th roster spot before preseason even began.
