Kurz took the offer after F Joe Smith, who has had two tours of duty with the team, decided to take the veteran minimum and sign with the Atlanta Hawks. That opened the door for Kurz to battle for the last roster spot with C Darryl Watkins. 2nd Round draft pick Danny Green is expected to have the other roster spot currently available.
The Cavaliers 15 man roster now shapes up this way, with Kurz the favorite to lock down a spot -
C - Shaquille O'Neal, Zydrunas Ilgauskas
PF - Anderson Varejao, J.J. Hickson, Darnell Jackson, Leon Powe, Rob Kurz
SF - LeBron James, Jamario Moon, Jawad Williams
SG - Delonte West, Anthony Parker, Danny Green
PG - Mo Williams, Daniel Gibson
