The Los Angeles Clippers will waive forward Carlos Delfino and center Miroslav Raduljica on Friday, reports Ben Bolch of the Los Angeles Times.

According to the report, the team will also use the stretch provision on both players to spread their salary cap hit over the next five years.

The Clippers acquired both players in a trade with the Milwaukee Bucks on Wednesday in exchange for forward Jared Dudley and a future first-round pick.

GOLLIVER: Reputations at stake for Team USA stars

Delfino, 31, missed all of last season with a foot injury after signing a three-year, $9.8 million deal with the Bucks, and could miss part of the 2014-15 with the same injury. He last appeared for the Houston Rockets in 2012-13, averaging 10.6 points and 3.3 rebounds.

Raduljica, 26, signed a three-year, $4.6 million contract as an undrafted free agent last summer. He averaged 3.8 points and 2.3 rebounds in 48 games for the Bucks last season.

According to USA Today, using the stretch provision on Delfino's contract will free up enough salary cap room for the Clippers to add an additional free agent if they wish.

Los Angeles went 57-25 last season and was eliminated in the second round of the NBA playoffs.
