As of February 10th, all contracts must be guaranteed for the rest of the season. As of today, teams are allowed to offer 10-day contracts to players. Daniel Gibson is healthy again and will play on Tuesday night in Miami.

All of this adds up to the unfortunate fate of rookie guard, Mychel Thompson. The Cavaliers decided to waive Thompson on Monday and the roster now stands at 14 players. This gives the Cavs the flexibility to sign someone to a 10-day deal...say, Manny Harris?

Mychel started 3 games for the Cavaliers and averaged 3.6 points, 1 rebounds, and 1.4 assists.
