Which players went from lottery to waiver fastest?

Which players went from lottery to waiver fastest?

In light of the shocking (and ugly) news of the former lottery pick being waived by the San Antonio Spurs Josh Primo late last week, we decided to take a look at other lottery picks that were quickly cut after being selected.

The Spurs obviously had good reasons to waive Primo, but in other cases, it was simply teams realizing they may have made a mistake with their valuable draft asset by picking the wrong player and selecting to cut their losses . In some cases, players were already on their second team when they were waived.

Below, check out the NBA players who quit the fastest since being drafted in the lottery.
