The Cleveland Cavaliers waived Josh Selby Sunday, clearing a roster spot, but the franchise won't sign Greg Oden yet, Cavs beat writers M.S. Boyer and J. Valade reported.
The Cavs have been reportedly interested in Oden, whose agent has said the former No. 1 pick won't sign until summer free agency begins.
Selby was acquired from the Memphis Grizzlies in a salary-shedding trade that also sent Marreese Speights and Wayne Ellington to Cleveland for Jon Leuer. His career has been a failure to launch.
Selby played one year for the University of Kansas before declaring for the 2011 NBA Draft. The Grizzlies picked him with the 49th pick in the second round. He never saw much time with the Grizz.
In the 2012 NBA Summer League, Selby was named co-MVP with Portland rookie phenom Damian Lillard.
His best game of the season was a 10-point effort on January 12 against the Dallas Mavericks.
