CLEVELAND (AP) – The Cavaliers have opened up a roster spot for free agent Andrew Bogut by waiving guard Jordan McRae.

Bogut is expected to clear waivers on Wednesday and the 7-foot center’s agent tells The Associated Press that he intends to sign with the defending NBA champions. Bogut, who gives Cleveland a needed rim protector and backup for Tristan Thompson, will join the Cavaliers later this week.

His addition comes two days after the Cavs signed veteran point guard Deron Williams, a former All-Star who gives the team depth, experience and another playmaker.

McRae averaged 4.4 points, made four starts and played in 37 games this season for Cleveland.

The 25-year-old has shown flashes of being a dependable scorer. The Cavaliers signed the former Tennessee standout as a free agent last year. He was originally drafted by San Antonio in 2014.
