After the Cavaliers announced that Andrew Bogut would miss the remainder of the season, ESPN reported Wednesday afternoon that the plan is to waive the Australian big man to free up a roster spot.
ESPN’s Dave McMenamin first reported the planned move.
Cleveland plans to waive Bogut in order to free up a roster spot to replace the big man who was brought in for his rim-protecting and play-making abilities, a team source told ESPN. Bogut plans to rehabilitate back in his native Australia with his family.
The report adds that the Cavaliers plan to make the move on their weekend road trip, which starts Thursday in Detroit, before heading to Orlando on Saturday, and ending in Houston on Saturday.
Bogut played all of 58 seconds with the Cavaliers on Monday in Cleveland, before he broke his leg, ending his short time with the wine and gold.
