The Los Angeles Lakers announced on Wednesday that the franchise has waived training camp invitees Travis Wear, Zach Auguste and Julian Jacobs.

Wear appeared in a pair of preseason games after the Lakers signed him to a training camp deal on September 1. He scored three points and grabbed two rebounds in his 11 minutes of action. The former UCLA Bruin’s only previous NBA stint came in 2014-2015 with the New York Knicks, where he averaged 3.9 points and 2.1 rebounds in 51 games. Wear spent last season playing in Spain, however.

Auguste didn’t play in any of the Lakers’ four preseason games after joining the team on August 29. He played for the Lakers at the Las Vegas Summer League after going undrafted out of Notre Dame in June. In just under 16 minutes per game in Vegas, Auguste averaged 5.3 points and four rebounds over the four games.

Jacobs also went undrafted out of Southern California before playing for the Indiana Pacers at the Orlando Summer League. In 11.5 minutes a game for the Summer League Pacers, he averaged four points and 2.5 rebounds.

The Lakers’ roster now stands at 17 players with four preseason games remaining. The only players remaining with non-guaranteed deals for the upcoming season are veterans Thomas Robinson and Metta World Peace. Forward Yi Jianlian also has a partially guaranteed contract.

Robinson hasn’t played more than nine minutes in any preseason game to this point and did not play at all in the Lakers’ loss to the Portland Trail Blazers on Tuesday. World Peace has appeared in just one game and played six minutes. Jianlian played 13 minutes against Portland and scored four points and grabbed four rebounds.
