Why would we do this unless we needed the roster spot? Is it common for teams to carry fewer than 15 on purpose? Any rumors out there?
I can think of a few reasons. One could be that the extra body is just a distraction. Another possibility is to just have the slot open in case there is something planned, or maybe just be prepared. It could be that another team wants to pick him up . . . maybe the Toros . . . and he'd rather play than not, so they are doing him a favor.
