The Manny Harris saga continues. After showing that he clearly belongs in the NBA during his time in the D-League, Manny is once again without a team. After two 10-day contracts with the Cavaliers, the front office has decided to not offer Harris a guaranteed contract for the rest of the season, according to Fox Sports.


The Cavs elected not to sign guard Manny Harris for the remainder of the season. Harris informed the media of the team’s decision after Sunday’s game.

I'm not totally sure what politics or other factors are at play here, but it seems like Harris had done enough to earn some playing time, yet barely got any at all. We don't know what goes on behind the scenes at practice, of course, and Byron Scott hasn't said anything to the media.

I have a sneaking suspicion that the Cavs will offer him a contract after the trade deadline passes. It seems likely that they simply wanted to keep some roster flexibility by leaving an open spot. This would be valuable if they are involved in any 1 for 2 player trades. Don't be shocked if Manny is back after the March 15th deadline.
