The Detroit Pistons will waive Michael Gbinije on Saturday, declining to guarantee the $1.3 million he would have made if they had chose to keep the second-year swingman. The deadline to make a decision was Saturday.
The person requested anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation. If the Pistons did not waive Gbinije this weekend, his $1.3 million contract for the 2017-18 season would have become fully guaranteed. This means the Pistons will save $812,000 in salary on the books for this season, and they'll save $1.544 million next season which will help counter a lower salary cap than expected when he was signed to his rookie deal a year ago.

Moroccan rising star Soufiane El-Bakkali claimed the men's 3,000 metres steeplechase in a personal best of 8:05.12. The race was won by Shaunae Miller-Uibo of the Bahamas, who is now assured of a spot in the Diamond League final.
The Detroit Pistons waived 2016 second-round draft pick Michael Gbinije on Saturday. He played in only nine games with several injuries ruining his opportunity when he was on the verge of possible playing time.
This brings the Pistons' roster down to 14 players, which is the number they need to get to when the season starts.
