CLEVELAND (AP) -- The Cleveland Cavaliers reduced their roster to the 15-man limit by waiving forward/center Michael Eric, forward Eric Jones and guard D'Aundray Brown.
It's possible all three players will be on Cleveland's Canton affiliate in the NBA Developmental League. With the cuts, Cavs coach Byron Scott decided to keep three point guards with Donald Sloan and Jeremy Pargo backing up rookie of the year Kyrie Irving.
Cleveland opens the season on Tuesday at home against Washington.
The 6-foot-11 Eric averaged 0.5 rebounds and 3.5 minutes in two exhibition games.
Jones, who played at West Virginia, 2.5 rebounds in nine minutes in two preseason games.
Brown was signed on Thursday. He played at Cleveland State, making 91 career starts for the Vikings.
