The Philadelphia 76ers have begun the technique of trimming their roster. On Sunday morning, a team official confirms that the team has parted ways with the young veteran Trevelin Queen. Keith Pompey of The Philadelphia Inquirer was the primary to report.
Back in June, Queen joined the Sixers as considered one of their day-one free-agency acquisitions. Following the signings of PJ Tucker and Danuel House Jr., Queen became a member of the organization after spending a season in Houston.
Last 12 months, Queen became a member of the Rockets after going undrafted. Although he was waived before debuting with the team, Queen joined the Rockets’ G League affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers. Queen earned a two-way contract with the Rockets and was named the 2021-2022 NBA G League MVP.
Following a successful run within the G League last 12 months, Queen garnered interest from Daryl Morey and the Sixers. When he was brought into Philly, Queen landed a two-year cope with the Sixers, in line with Spotrac.

From the jump, Queen was expected to be battling for a spot on the Sixers’ roster. Unfortunately, he won’t be on the roster any longer after two preseason games.
Queen leaves the organization after spending a week-long training camp with the team in Charleston, South Carolina, together with two preseason matchups against the Brooklyn Nets and the Cleveland Cavaliers.
In Queen’s Sixers’ debut against the Nets last Monday, the young veteran hit his head on the court and was ruled out for the remaining of the matchup. Queen wasn’t cleared for motion on Wednesday against the Cavs as he was battling concussion symptoms.
All week long, Queen was a limited participant at Sixers practice. When the team scrimmaged in Delaware on Saturday, Queen was the one player on the roster to take a seat out as a result of injury. Although Queen was on pace to be cleared for motion as early as Sunday, the young guard will part ways with the 76ers.
