Report: 3 Players That Could Fill Remaining Roster Spot for Cavs

The Cleveland Cavaliers roster for the 2019-20 NBA season is mostly set, but they have two roster spots remaining and very little money to spend.

According to Chris Fedor of, they ideally would like to add one more wing player to take the pressure off incoming rookies Kevin Porter Jr. and Dylan Windler.

However, the Cavaliers are currently about $2.85 million below the luxury tax threshold and seem reluctant to go over that. As a result, they can only add one player on a minimum contract to avoid paying the luxury tax for the 2019-20 season.

Fedor noted that three players — Sindarius Thornwell, Tyler Dorsey and Wayne Selden Jr. – could fit within those parameters.

Thornwell was a second-round draft pick in 2017. A 6-foot-5, 215-pound shooting guard, he showed some spark from long-range in his rookie season by making 37.7 percent of his 3-point attempts in 2017-18.

Dorsey is a 6-foot-5, 183-pound guard who was also selected in the second round of the NBA draft two years ago. He has averaged 6.3 points per game and shot 35 percent from 3-point range in his two NBA seasons.

Selden stands 6-foot-5 and weighs 230 pounds. He’s played only 124 games in his three seasons, but shot 40.2 percent from downtown for Memphis in the 2017-18 season.
