The San Antonio Spurs have waived guard Courtney Fells and forward Dan Nwaelele and will head into the new season with a 14 man roster.

Fells did not play (coach's decision) in the Spurs' loss to the Heat last night and Nwaelele scored two points in three minutes.
Seeing Fells waived isn't such a surprise considering the team is stacked with guards such as Tony Parker, Patty Mills, Nando De Colo, and Cory Joseph. It was going to be tough for Fells to make this roster.
As for Nwaelele, he had a slight outside shot with the Spurs needing a back up small forward for Kawhi Leonard. With Dan waived, it appears the team will leave the final roster spot for another player to back up Kawhi or other insurance needs.
This move isn't too surprising considering the Spurs have usually gone into new season with a roster spot open.
