With all contracts being guaranteed come this Friday and guard Daniel Gibson returning from his bout with an infected neck, the Cavaliers have opted to waive guard-forward Mychel Thompson. Starting three games, Thompson averaged 3.6 points and 1.0 rebound.
This move provides Chris Grant with enhanced flexibility as they head into the trade deadline. The team could opt to add another player in a trade or merely decide to bring released shooting guard Manny Harris up from the Canton Charge where he, coming off of back-to-back 21-point outings, averaging 18.6 points, 7.4 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game on the seeason.
A 10-day contract can also come into play.
