The Cavaliers waived guard Manny Harris on Monday, only days after adding Dion Waiters as presumably the starting shooting guard.
By waiving Harris now, the Cavs have given him ample time to sign with another team. Free agency began on Sunday.
Harris averaged 6.7 points and 2.7 rebounds in three separate stints with the Cavs last season. In addition to Waiters, the team added 6-foot-7 guard/forward Kelenna Azubuike in a draft night deal with the Dallas Mavericks.
Azubuike has been plagued by knee problems the last few years, but showed a gritty defensive effort and a smooth 3-point stroke during the 2007-08 season with the Golden State Warriors.
Azubuike was signed by the Mavericks late last season and given a small team option for this season.
