Waiting For Next Year:
The Cleveland Cavaliers reduced their NBA roster down to the NBA maximum of 15 today three days ahead of opening night. The team released forward Kevin Jones, center Micheal Eric, and guard D’Aundray Brown this afternoon. The moves mean that point guard Jeremy Pargo and forward Luke Harangody snagged the final two opening night roster spots.
Jones was signed as an undrafted free agent following his four years at West Virginia. The 6’6″ a power forward has a knack for rebounding but lacks NBA length. He had signed a three-year deal with Cleveland with only a very small portion of it guaranteed. Eric played for the team’s summer league squad and was an undrafted camp invitee out of Temple. Brown, a 6’4″ guard undrafted out of Cleveland State, was just signed on Thursday.
The Cavaliers opening night roster will likely be the following:
Guards (5): Kyrie Irving, Dion Waiters, Daniel Gibson, Donald Sloan, Jeremy Pargo
Forwards (8): C.J. Miles, Tristan Thompson, Alonzo Gee, Jon Leuer, Omri Casspi, Samardo Samuels, Luke Walton, Luke Harangody
Centers (2): Anderson Varejao, Tyler Zeller

It's possible all three players will be on Cleveland's Canton affiliate in the NBA Developmental League. With the cuts, Cavs coach Byron Scott decided to keep three point guards with Donald Sloan and Jeremy Pargo backing...
Daniel Gibson: Ankle Around 95 Percent Gibson had to overcome both an offseason ankle injury and some concussion-like symptoms this preseason, but it looks like he will be ready to start the regular season. He should be one of the Cavs' first guards off the bench in 2012-13, and he could see some extra minutes early in the season if Kyrie Irving (tooth) can not play. Even when...
