Sixers waive Kwame Brown, Darius Morris; add Lorenzo Brown, Elliot Williams


The 76ers waived center Kwame Brown and guard Darius Morris Wednesday, making room for guards Elliot Williams and Lorenzo Brown, for whom the terms of the contracts are unknown.

Kwame Brown, pictured, who had yet to play this season while battling a right hamstring strain, is due $3 million. Morris, who averaged 6.9 points in 16.8 minutes in 12 appearances, will make $1.06 million.

“Never a fun day to have to do that, but this is the stage we’re in,” Sixers GM Sam Hinkie said on the roster moves. “We’ll continue to evaluate players and find ones that can help us move forward and find others on our radar that we can add to our group.”

Williams (6-5, 190), taken 22nd overall by Portland in the 2010 NBA draft, wasn’t affiliated with any team when he got the call to join the Sixers. He had been working out in his hometown of Memphis, after playing with the Cleveland Cavaliers in training camp. He said he knows Memphis guys and new Sixers teammates Thad Young and Arnett Moultrie. Williams played in 24 games with the Trail Blazers in the 2011-12 seaon.

Lorenzo Brown (6-5, 186), selected 52nd overall by Minnesota in the 2013 draft, was with the D-League’s Springfield Armor when contacted by the Sixers. He said he spent his Tuesday afternoon driving to Philadelphia, and took a physical Wednesday morning. Brown played his college ball at N.C. State.
