reasons for the waivers:

1. Trade deadline is 3pm tommorow, but players clear/are claimed by 12:00PM tommorow. In order to get players into this "last chance for waivers", they have to be placed on waivers by 12:00PM today. More players may have been placed and we just havn't heard about them yet.

2. Players claimed after the trade deadline cannot play for their new teams for the playoffs. This is the last chance for playoff teams this year.

3. Playoff teams need to clear cap room for trade deadline acquisitions.

edit: changed roster inelegibility to playoffs only.
