Cavaliers waive guard Harris

He made 15 starts last season as an undrafted free agent

CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cavaliers have waived guard Manny Harris, who missed training camp with a burned foot.
After making the roster as an undrafted free agent, Harris made 15 starts last season for Cleveland, averaging 5.9 points, 2.6 rebounds and 17 minutes. He had been unable to practice because of a burn on his right foot that team doctors could not treat during the NBA lockout. With Harris being released, rookie Mychel Thompson could make the team.
The Cavs also waived guard Kenny Hayes, trimming their roster to 15.
Cleveland opens the regular season on Monday at home against Toronto.
