The Cavaliers are making their roster fit for the regular season, waiving four players on Saturday.
Those cut — guards Isaiah Taylor and Kobi Simmons, swingman Bonzi Colson and forward Emanuel Terry.
It was revealed earlier this week that Taylor suffered a lower-leg stress fracture. He was initially expected to be the third-string point guard behind George Hill and rookie Collin Sexton, but Taylor’s one-year contract was not guaranteed.
Taylor appeared in three preseason games, averaging 4.7 points and 2.3 assists in 16.8 minutes. He spent last season with the Atlanta Hawks.
Simmons was another intriguing prospect, having spent portions of last year playing for the Memphis Grizzlies.
Colson and Terry were the longest of long shots, but each is likely to have a home with the Cavs’ G-League team in Canton.
The Cavs’ roster now stands at 16, with both two-way spots filled (John Holland, Billy Preston).
