Per Brett Siegel on Twitter, Enes Freedom has been waived by the Rockets
After a trade that sent Freedom to the Rockets on trade deadline day, he has since been waived by the team. Rumors around the league have speculated that no team has expressed interest in the veteran.
The Boston Celtics traded Enes Freedom to Houston as part of a trade that also sent Dennis Schroder to Rockets, but Freedom will be waived.
This comes as no surprise and it wouldn't be a surprise either if Schroder enters the buyout market. Freedom could be a depth pickup for a playoff contender.
