The regular season is fast approaching, and that means the deadline to set NBA rosters for opening day is as well. By 2PM PST on Monday, October 15th, all 30 NBA teams will have had to submit their final rosters for the start of the 2018-19 season, with some having to make some potentially excruciating cuts. Doc Rivers and the L.A. Clippers are going to be one of those teams.

On Tuesday, the Clippers waived training camp invite Desi Rodriguez, who also played for the team in Summer League. The move cut their roster down to 17 players (not including the pair of two-way players who dona€™t count towards a roster spot). That leaves six more days to decide which players will round out the final, 15-man roster.

Coach Rivers says hea€™s not looking for anything in particular in the teama€™s final two preseason games, and that they know what moves theya€™re going to make by the 15th.

a€œWe probably know what wea€™re going to do already for the most part,a€ admitted Rivers before the Clippers took on the Nuggets. a€œObviously Ia€™ll sit with Lawrence [Frank], Michael [Winger], and everybody, but we pretty much know.a€
