Tyler Haws just can’t catch a break.
Just days after he signed with the Wisconsin Herd, BYU’s all-time leading scorer was waived on Thursday.
Haws has struggled to find a roster spot this season after spending his first two seasons in Europe. He started out the year with a training camp spot in Italy before he moved on to the G-League for another training camp stint with the Delaware 87ers, but failed to stick with either team.
Not exactly what many Cougar fans expected from Haws after he left BYU as one of the school’s most productive players on the offensive end.
While Haws is a free agent once again, Matt Carlino has found a new team.
The former BYU point guard is returning to Italy to play for the Roseto Sharks in Serie A2. It will be his second season in Italy after he closed the 2016-17 campaign with Vanoli Cremona where he averaged 6.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 21 games.
He joins a Sharks squad that had struggled to start the season going winless in their first seven games.
On the hardwood
L.J. Rose finally saw meaningful minutes with the Salt Lake Stars, and took advantage of the opportunity in a 122-111 loss to the Santa Cruz Warriors on Wednesday.
He played 13 minutes during the third and fourth quarter and totaled five points on 2-for-5 shooting from the field and 1-for-2 from the foul line. He added four assists and was a plus eight while on the floor.
Brandon Davies had another perfect shooting day in limited action as Zalgiris Kaunas dropped a 97-77 decision to Baskonia on Thursday. He hit both his shots to finish with four points while adding a rebound, an assist and a steal in 11 minutes.
Davies is now averaging 6.9 points a contest during EuroLeague play on 60 percent shooting while playing less than 15 minutes.
