Cavaliers held preliminary discussion with Richard Jefferson's agent about tenuous roster spot

Cavaliers held preliminary discussion with Richard Jefferson's agent about tenuous roster spot

The Cavaliers have a great problem on their hands, with so much new talent that two savvy veterans who played key roles on the last two Finals teams are fighting just to get on the court.

But with this problem, in the short term, is going to come a bit of pain. With the signing of Dwyane Wade last week, the Cavs now have 16 players under guaranteed contract. The most they can have when the season starts on Oct. 17 is 15.

Someone -- maybe someone you know -- has to go.

The playoff for that one-way ticket out of Cleveland was in full swing Wednesday during the Cavs' preseason opener, a 109-93 loss to the Atlanta Hawks.

Neither Richard Jefferson not Channing Frye, two staples of coach Tyronn Lue's rotations the past two seasons, played until the second half. Frye scored seven points and Jefferson added five; the Hawks outscored the Cavs by 20 with Frye out there and 14 when Jefferson was on the court.
