After wrapping up the preseason with another win over the Portland Trail Blazers, the Golden State Warriors had to make some adjustments to their roster before the start of the regular season.

Following their 119-97 win over Portland, the Warriors waived four players. Golden State waived all four players in competition for their 15th roster spot, including veteran Avery Bradley and former Warriors Gary Payton II, Mychal Mulder and Jordan Bell.

Via @WarriorsPR on Twitter:

Bradley was looked at as a favorite to land the final roster spot. However, the Warriors will now enter the regular season with some flexibility at the end of their roster.

In four preseason games, Bradley averaged 4.2 points on 38.9% shooting from the floor in 12.7 minutes per game. The 11-year-veteran will now become a free agent.

Payton II’s time in the preseason was limited to only one game due to a hernia injury. On Friday, the Oregon State product played 11 minutes against the Los Angeles Lakers, scoring 12 points on 5-of-7 shooting from the field. Payton II was ruled out against the Blazers on Tuesday with the same hernia injury.

After spending the 2020-21 season with the Warriors, Mulder could be a candidate to return to the Bay Area on a two-way deal. Chris Chiozza is currently the only player on Golden State’s roster on a two-way contract with the Santa Cruz Warriors. The Warriors currently have one open two-way slot for the 2020-21 season.

Jordan Bell played in four preseason games with the Warriors, averaging three points and 1.5 rebounds in 8.2 minutes.
