CLEVELAND, Ohio — The Cleveland Cavaliers waived four players on Saturday afternoon, trimming the roster down to 14.
The Cavs waived Bonzie Colson, Kobi Simmons, Emanuel Terry and Isaiah Taylor.
Colson and Terry were always considered long shots to make the final roster. Simmons arrived at camp believing he had a chance to battle with Taylor for the third point guard spot.
Taylor recently suffered a stress fracture in his leg and told cleveland.com that he could be out for a month. Despite a strong camp and head coach Tyronn Lue’s support, the Cavs waived Taylor about 30 minutes after announcing their first three roster cuts.
The Cavs’ current roster also includes a pair of players on two-way deals — Billy Preston and John Holland.
With one roster spot available, the Cavs will keep an eye on players waived around the NBA and could make one more addition. They could also stick with 14 heading into the regular season opener.
The Cavaliers will tip off the season on Wednesday night against the Toronto Raptors.
