Now that they have officially signed three-time champion Dwyane Wade, the Cleveland Cavaliers could be facing some difficult roster decisions. As most hoops fans know, teams in the NBA are allowed to have 15 men on their roster, as well as a pair of two-ways contracts for their respective G-League affiliate team. As of today (September 29), the Cavs have a full training camp roster — 20 men aboard. Who makes the final cut and who doesn’t remains to be seen, but a few of these guys have to go. It’s simply inevitable. Who might the Cavs choose to offload in trimming their rotation to 15 men, you ask? One possible scenario could include Channing Frye and Richard Jefferson, according to a report from Vince Ellis of The Detroit Free Press. In his recent article, Ellis noted that he asked two members of the Pistons front office about their interest in either Frye or Jefferson. “I ran it by two persons with firsthand knowledge of the Pistons front office,” Ellis writes in his article. “The response was lukewarm. With Stanley Johnson the only natural small forward on the roster, you could see the fit for the Pistons. But one person downplayed any interest in Jefferson, saying he just fits better with the Cavs.
