Found July 04, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

The Cavaliers ‘lost’ Semih Erden to Turkey today, and cut Guard Manny Harris yesterday. They still have to make decisions about Daniel Gibson, Samardo Samuels and Kelenna Azubuike’s team options. Alonzo Gee will likely test the free agent market, but the Cavs will certainly match the offer sheet he signs. If the Cavs keep all of these players, they will have 13 players under contract, 14 if Kevin Jones makes the team.
