Cavs Waive Kapono, resign Manny for the Remainder of 2012

Good ending to all the trouble Manny had to start the year.  Kapono is a good dude and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him back in Miami

via cleveland.com

“Jason Kapono’s second tour of duty with the Cavaliers ended before it began.

Kapono, acquired Thursday in the trade with the Los Angeles Lakers will be waived, a league source said. The club plans to sign shooting guard Manny Harris for the remainder of the season.

Coach Byron Scott has hinted the past two days the team might bring back Harris, who played sparingly during two 10-day contracts recently.

The Cavaliers signed point guard Donald Sloan from the D-League Erie Bayhawks earlier on Friday.

The club picked up Kapono as part of the deal that sent Ramon Sessions and Christian Eyenga to the Lakers for Luke Walton, a lottery-protected, first-round pick and the right to swap first-round draft picks in 2013. Kapono, who played one season (2003-04) with the Cavaliers, will become an unrestricted free agent.

The team likely will pay him approximately $400,000 that is left on his one-year deal. The Cavaliers roster is back to a full 15 players. They host Atlanta on Sunday at The Q. “
