Cavaliers Waive Rice and Adams
Danny Ferry waived Hassan Adams and Darius Rice. Adams played in three preseason games for the Cavs, averaging 2.7 ppg, 0.7 rpg and 0.3 apg in 6.3 mpg. Rice appeared in three games and averaged 1.7 ppg and 2.3 rpg in 7.3 minutes.
The Cavaliers roster is now down to 13 and have two extra roster spots open.
The Cavaliers are active in trade talks with teams with too many guaranteed contracts.
according to Brian Windhorst:
“Sources said the roster flexibility has the Cavs involved in some trade talks with other teams with too many guaranteed contracts. In addition to the roster spots, the Cavs also have a trade exception of $1.75 million if they find something they like. Also, the Cavs might be active on the waiver wire with a number of teams being forced to make hard cuts over the weekend. The team’s scouts have been heavily deployed during the preseason looking at potential cuts.”
Dwayne Jones is the only training-camp invitee who made the team.
