The roster of Richard Jefferson on the Cleveland Cavaliers is in jeopardy as the preseason begins.
The Cavaliers have 16 fully guaranteed contracts plus Kay Felder’s partial guarantee following the signing of Dwyane Wade. Edy Tavares is on a non-guaranteed deal. Tavares is a likely candidate to be released while Felder could be in danger of being traded or cut.
The Cavaliers would have to clear one more guaranteed contract even after parting ways with Felder and Tavares.
The Cavaliers’ second unit currently includes Wade, Iman Shumpert, Kyle Korver, Jeff Green and Tristan Thompson.
