The Philadelphia 76ers announced Sunday that they waived guard Rodney Williams and forward Gani Lawal, a Norcross grad.

The Sixers' roster is at 14 players.

Williams, a small forward, was an undrafted rookie free agent out of Minnesota.

Lawal, a power forward-center, was a second-round draft pick of the Phoenix Suns in 2010 out of Georgia Tech. He started the season in the NBA D-League. He played one game for the Suns before tearing an ACL in January 2011 and missed the rest of the season. He played overseas until signing with the Sixers on Oct. 5.
