The return of NBA games that count also brought the return of The Bernucca List, which made its 2012-13 debut last week.
It took just under three hours before reader Brian delivered the correct answer, which was “Players who were waived after being acquired in trades this offseason.”
Five of the players on the list were waived by Houston Rockets GM Daryl Morey, who added to the list following the James Harden trade by waiving five more players – Jon Brockman, Gary Forbes, Lazar Hayward, JaJuan Johnson and Shaun Livingston.
Not exactly an ideal jobs plan, but hey, this is the NBA.
Anyway, congrats to Brian. Let’s see if he can become the first back-to-back winner of The Bernucca List, which returns below.
