The Cleveland Cavaliers have decided to part ways with shooting guard Manny Harris, officially announcing on Monday that he has been waived.
Harris, 22, averaged 6.7 points and 2.7 rebounds through 26 contests with the Cavaliers last season. He missed a substantial portion of the shortened season with a foot injury and apparently became the odd man out with the team selecting Dion Waiters fourth-overall in the recently held NBA Draft. The Michigan product managed to latch on to the team in 2010, at the expense of shooting guard Danny Green, but failed to improve much year-over-year in what was ultimately a position of need for the Wine and Gold.
Barring any substantial free agent acquisitions, this move almost assures that the team will pick up the team option of guard Daniel Gibson. The team has also been linked to free agent shooting guard Sonny Weems.
