The Cleveland Cavaliers announced that they have waived center DeSagana Diop, forward Kenny Kadji, guard Jermaine Taylor and guard Elliot Williams.
Kadji played in seven preseason games with averages of 5.0 points and 1.7 rebounds in 9.4 minutes per game. Taylor averaged 5.7 points, 1.3 rebounds and 1.9 assists in seven preseason games. Williams played in six Cavs preseason contests...
At media day, the Cleveland Cavaliers released the training camp roster, and a familiar name was a bit of a surprise.

It's plays like this that explain why the Bobcats have only won three games so far this season.

Bobcats center Byron Mullens had a career-high [...]
