AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) The Detroit Pistons have waived center Hasheem Thabeet, forward Brian Cook and guards Josh Bostic and Lorenzo Brown.
The team announced the moves Monday. Detroit hosts Philadelphia on Thursday night in a preseason game. The Pistons open the regular season at Denver on Oct. 29.
Thabeet was the No. 2 pick in the 2009 draft by Memphis, but the 7-foot-3 center has never averaged more than 3.1 points per game. He played 23 games for Oklahoma City last season.
