The Mad Ants finalized their roster by releasing Deonte Burton and E. Victor Nickerson. Nickerson had been with the Mad Ants last season and Burton was acquired Oct. 20 from Northern Arizona for a second-round pick in this year’s G League draft.
It’s interesting, the Mad Ants used three picks in the draft and dealt one for Burton and the only player from that draft to remain on the roster is Tra-Deon Hollins.
Here is Fort Wayne’s roster as it heads into Saturday’s season opener against the Long Island Nets at Uniondale, New York, noting that Edmond Sumner is out with an injury, Alex Poythress is with the Indiana Pacers and Trey McKinney Jones is recovering from an injury, too:
