With the Cleveland Cavaliers firmly moving to Tristan Thompson as the starting center, the team has been on the lookout for another big man to take some minutes and produce on the court. As such, they've decided to trim some weight by cutting ties with one of the biggest men, Ryan Hollins. AP Sports Writer Tom Withers had the report via Twitter:

Hollins has been with the team since 2010, and hasn't been much of a contributor. Hollins has always been viewed as someone with a ton of potential, but has never been able to actually demonstrate that on the court. He's got all the athletic tools to play and succeed in the NBA - he's very agile for a player at his height, but never shows anything when he's actually playing.

His averages on the season are paltry - 3.7 points and 2.3 rebounds per game in 24 games this year. All while averaging 15.1 minutes per game. His career averages are a bit higher in regards to points - at 4.2 per game with fewer minutes at 13.2, so he's certainly not "improving" by any stretch of the imagination.
