The Cleveland Cavaliers have waived four players from their training camp roster, cutting it down to 16 players which includes a two-way player.
Per the team’s website, Cavs general manager Koby Altman announced that the team has waived guard Daniel Hamilton, forward Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, guard J.P. Macura and guard Sindarius Thornwell.
The Cavs will be entering their second season without superstar LeBron James, who ventured on to the Los Angeles Lakers last year. They have their core of Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson, Jordan Clarkson, Collin Sexton and Cedi Osman pretty much intact.
Moreover, they added fifth overall pick Darius Garland to their lineup, which many say could form a great duo with Sexton.
Legendary college basketball coach John Beilein is also taking over as their new head coach. Given his penchant for making point guards as the focal point of his offense, analysts expect Sexton to get more opportunities. Sexton, in response, bulked up over the summer and worked on his stroke and playmaking abilities.

Love’s health, of course, is an ongoing concern. He claims that he’s in a better shape now than before, but as the team’s franchise star, his words have to translate into reality.
The Cavs, even after James’ departure, have been blessed with a talented core group and a few newcomers. They still have all the tools to make it right.
