Mychel Thompson and Manny Harris were competing for the last spot as backup SG on the Cavaliers roster throughout the abbreviated preseason. Unfortunately for Harris, he suffered a foot injury and has been unable to participate in training camp and preseason games. From what I hear, he is still a few weeks away from being able to play. I really liked the potential that Manny showed last season and think he deserved a shot. I guess the Cavaliers front office disagreed.
The Cavs roster currently sits at the designated 15 players and will remain that way unless there are further roster transactions. Hopefully we'll get a statement from Byron Scott and Chris Grant to better explain why they chose to go with Thompson over Harris.
Editor Note: I posted this a little while ago and have now given it more thought. I don't like this move at all. Mychel Thompson showed me very little in the preseason games. Granted, I am not at training camp practices to see him, but from what I saw, it was pretty "meh". Manny Harris showed that he could be pretty useful for an NBA team. Don't like this move at all.
