The Portland Trail Blazers have cut their roster down to 15 players.

The Blazers waived point guard Phil Pressey and forward Omari Johnson Friday morning.

Each appeared in 4 pre-season games, Pressey averaging 4.8 points and 2 assists, Johnson 2.3 points and 1 rebound per game.

The Blazers signed Pressey to a non-guaranteed contract in July. Johnson, and Oregon State alum, was trying to make the team via training camp and pre-season.
