Via press release from the Bulls:

The Chicago Bulls announced today that the team has requested waivers on guards John Lucas III, Kyle Weaver, and forward Roger Powell.

Lucas III (5-11, 165) saw action in five preseason games with the Bulls and averaged 2.2 ppg and 0.8 apg in 6.4 mpg.

Weaver (6-6, 201) played in three preseason contests and posted averages of 2.3 ppg, 2.3 apg, 1.7 rpg and 8.7 mpg.

Powell (6-6, 225) appeared in one preseason game and recorded two points and one board in two minutes of play.

The Bulls' roster now stands at 13:

Omer Asik, Keith Bogans, Carlos Boozer, Ronnie Brewer, Luol Deng, Taj Gibson, James Johnson, Kyle Korver, Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, Brian Scalabrine, Kurt Thomas, C.J. Watson

The assumption is that Boozer will be placed on the injured list before the season opener next Wednesday vs. the Thunder and have 12 active players.
