Upshaw had played in four preseason games as well as the NBA’s summer league.

The 7-foot rookie out of Washington showed promise with his shot-blocking ability, but could not win the backup center job over Robert Sacre or Tarik Black.

Frazier was an undrafted rookie out of the University of Florida, who appeared in four preseason games for Los Angeles, averaging 2.0 points per game in 13.5 minutes per game.
