The Detroit Pistons were set to have 18 players on a team with only 15 roster spots so we knew something was going to have to give. And on Monday night, the team cleared room by releasing Peyton Siva and Josh Harrellson in order to make room for new signees Caron Butler and DJ Augustin.

It's a harsh business, and now both players are going to have to determine what is next for their respective careers. Siva was a late second-round draft pick in 2013 who, after an abysmal start to his rookie season, put in work and looked like he had a good chance to stick with the roster with strong play in the D League and a late-season surge last year.
