Slow news day unless you wanna read nine separate reports about Baron Davis being waived via the new CBA’s amnesty clause, but here’s a story detailing the bulging disk from which BD is currently suffering. It appears he’s going to be on the bench for awhile, which makes him a perfect fit to play 20-30 regular season games before helping a contender during a deep playoff run, no? (Provided he’s not 438 pounds by February.)
Also, Manny Harris has a strange, freezer-burn type mark on his right foot that’s going to sideline him for approximately two weeks. I wonder if this is going to hurt his ability to make the team. And Omri Casspi is day-to-day with a sprained knee. He might not play in the Cavs’ exhibition opener against Detroit.
I haven’t read anything about what the Cavaliers’ front office will do with the cap space (about $8 mil) created by Davis’s departure, but if Chris Grant does anything in the next couple of days, I’ll make sure to pass it along.
