Dakota Mathias is waived by the Sixers
Dakota Mathias was waived by the Sixers in the team's effort to create flexibility for potential opportunities that may become available later down the line.
Mathias was a hero of sorts after knocking down a go-ahead three-pointer in overtime against the Heat to secure the Sixers' victory last week. Due to unforeseen circumstances relating to COVID-19, he was thrust into the rotation to provide some stability to the line-up, with several key team members unavailable. Mathias averaged 15.4 minutes of playing time, 6.0 points, 0.9 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 0.1 steals, and 0.4 blocks per game across eight contests.
