The Cleveland Cavaliers announced Sunday that they waived defensive-minded guard Deandre Liggins to create an extra roster space. It is likely that the Cavaliers will sign another free agent before the playoffs begin, and they have a long list of playoff-eligible free agents they could choose from. But, these four would probably be the best fit.

Gary Neal

Gary Neal was given a short opportunity this season by the Atlanta Hawks where he played two games on a 10-day deal but wasn’t retained. Neal mainly provides outside shooting, which is what the Cleveland Cavaliers favor most because LeBron James draws plenty of attention and needs shooters surrounding him.

The veteran could possibly thrive in Cleveland since he would get many open looks. It’s worth giving him a try.

Anderson Varejao

Anderson Varejao has always been a fan-favorite in Cleveland for obvious reasons. He was the spark plug off Cleveland’s bench back in the day due to his immense energy and hustle. Given that he is very familiar with the organization, Varejao would be a perfect option for the Cavaliers. Although they recently signed Larry Sanders to strengthen their frontline, it wouldn’t hurt to have another big man the Cavs can rely on in the long run.

Jimmer Fredette

Jimmer Fredette is also known for his excellent outside shooting, and he put that on full display in China where he averaged an insane 37.6 points per game.

Fredette has yet to prove himself in the NBA, which is why teams are hesitant to sign him. However, he, too, may thrive in Cleveland due to the easy looks he would receive from beyond the arc. Fredette could be utilized as a point guard or shooting guard given the circumstances. He would be a solid fit for the Cavaliers.

Jordan Farmar

For some reason, teams are not giving Jordan Farmar the opportunity to prove himself as a backup point guard. He played two games for the Sacramento Kings this season and was never seen in the NBA afterward. However, not too long ago Farmar was averaging double figures in points off the bench for the Los Angeles Lakers.

The two-time champion has plenty of playoff experience and has the ability to stabilize the second unit. He can create offense for himself, as well as others, and can also play off the ball if needed. Farmar’s abilities are being overlooked, but he has always been a solid backup point guard.

Mario Chalmers

Mario Chalmers would be the obvious choice for the Cavaliers. He has played alongside LeBron James and has a ton of playoff experience as well. Chalmers has the ability to play on and off the ball and is a terrific outside shooter. Last season for the Memphis Grizzlies, he averaged 10.8 points, 3.8 assists, and 2.6 rebounds off the bench before tearing his Achilles’ tendon. Chalmers is a reliable backup player.
