Cavaliers waive trio of players to complete final roster
Cleveland, CA, United States (4E Sports) – The Cleveland Cavaliers announced their final 15-man roster for the 2012-2013 NBA season Saturday, waiving forwards Michael Eric and Kevin Jones along with guard D’Aundray Brown.
Eric played two preseason games for the Cavaliers, who gave him the summer camp invitation after seeing him shot .667 percent from the field with 3.8 rebounds in 13 minutes per game. However, his playing time drastically decreased in the preseason.
Jones is an undrafted rookie free-agent out of West Virginia. Though he has a great upside, Jones could need more seasoning in the D-League.
Brown, who averaged 7.8 points, 4.8 boards, and 1.8 steals over 115 games for the Cleveland State University, will likely join Eric and Jones to the Cavs’ Development League affiliate, Canton Charge.
Tyler Zeller, Luke Walton, Dion Waiters, Anderson Verajao, Donald Sloan, Tristan Thompson, Jeremy Pargo, CJ Miles, Samardo Samuels, Jon Leuer, Luke Harangody, Daniel Gobson, Alonzo Gee, Omri Casspi, and Kyle Irving complete the 15-man unit for the Cavs.
