Cavaliers Waive Mychel Thompson

The Cavaliers have officially waived Mychel Thompson, according to the team. Tom Reid and Mary Schmitt Boyer of the Cleveland Plain Dealer first reported (via Twitter) that the Cavs intended to waive the 23-year-old.

Thompson signed with the Cavs as an undrafted rookie out of Pepperdine, and worked his way into the starting lineup in the last week. He struggled in his three starts, making just five of 21 shots from the field (23.8%) and averaging 4.7 points in just under 27 minutes per game.

Thompson's contract would have become guaranteed for the rest of the season on Friday had he remained on the roster, so the move gives the Cavs some extra flexibility. Their roster now stands at 14.

    This is no loss for the Cavaliers. I went to the game in Orlando last Friday Night and he scored 0 points, grabbed 1 rebound and had 0 assists in 30+ minutes.

      He looked lost out there. They need to gut this team an get some picks. Draft is pretty deep.
