As the Cavaliers prepare for the start of the playoffs, they have made a roster change on Sunday, waiving guard DeAndre Liggins.
Liggins has played in 61 games (19 starts) for the Cavs this season, averaging 2.4 points in 12.3 minutes.
The move reduces the Cavaliers' roster to 14 players. Per ESPN's Dave McMenamin, the team plans to fill the spot in time for Wednesday's deadline to be playoff eligible.

Also, Cleveland.com's Joe Vardon reports that former Cavalier Anderson Varejao is being considered to rejoin his old team.
The magic number for the Cavaliers to wrap up the top seed in the Eastern Conference remains at 2 with three games left to play (including Sunday's game at Atlanta). The postseason will begin next weekend.
