The Cleveland Cavaliers have trimmed their roster down to 15 players after waiving DeSagana Diop, Kenny Kadji, Jermaine Taylor and Elliot Williams.

None of these cuts really come as a surprise, as it seemed like Henry Sims and Matthew Dellevadova seemed like the front runners to land in the final 15. It should be noted that this is not the official roster for the start of this season, that announcement will be made at some point next week.

Out of the players cut I would say that Jermaine Taylor has the best odds of finding a home on an NBA team. While there was some debate over who should be kept between him and Dellevadova, it was clear that he was just not as good of a fit for what the Cavalier's needed.

While the roster isn't finalized I don't foresee the Cavs deviating away from their final 15 as they appear below:

Kyrie Irving

Dion Waiters

Alonzo Gee

Tristan Thompson

Anderson Varejao

Jarrett Jack

C.J. Miles

Earl Clark

Anthony Bennett

Andrew Bynum

Sergey Karasev

Tyler Zeller

Henry Sims

Matthew Dellevadova

Carrick Felix
