Manny Harris didn’t play much in the Cavs blowout preseason win over the Sixers this evening but he received some good news after the game. The Cavaliers announced that they had waived former 2nd round draft pick Danny Green.
The cut brings the Cavs roster, which still includes Manny Harris, to the NBA limit of 15 players. The Cavs still have the option to sign a player that was released by another team but, for now, Manny Harris is safe.
When Manny Harris announced he was entering the draft I figured that he had a chance to land somewhere in the second round. When he injured his ankle before the draft, didn’t get drafted, and couldn’t play in the Summer League, I figured his odds were slim to none. 2nd round draft picks don’t always end up on NBA rosters, let alone undrafted rookies. He certainly proved me, and just about everyone else, dead wrong.
