Seven players waived, 20 spots open

RENO, Nev. -- After seven players were waived by various teams Tuesday, there are precisely 430 players under contract in the NBA.

Andrew Bynum (Chicago), Ryan Gomes (Boston), Mike Harris (Utah), Stephen Jackson (L.A. Clippers), Cartier Martin (Atlanta), Daniel Orton (Philadelphia) and Shawne Williams (L.A. Lakers) were the unfortunate seven, leaving 20 open roster spots around the league.

That number is poised to quickly drop to 19 on Wednesday when the Clippers, according to sources, go through with their plans to bring back point guard Maalik Wayns on a 10-day deal after waiving Wayns on Sunday. Phoenix is also on the verge of re-signing fan favorite Leandro Barbosa to a 10-day contract as soon as Barbosa's FIBA clearance is secured after his recent stint with Pinheiros in his native Brazil.

But the following team-by-team breakdown shows where those job openings were as of Tuesday's close of business, after the aforementioned seven players were released before their contracts became guaranteed for the rest of the season.

Atlanta Hawks: 14 players under contract/1 open roster spot

Boston Celtics: 14/1

Chicago Bulls: 12/3*

Golden State Warriors: 14/1

Indiana Pacers: 14/1

Los Angeles Clippers: 14/1
