In the fall of 2010 the Cavs' first roster of their rebuilding phase began to take place.
On it were some veteran holdovers like Antawn Jamison, Anthony Parker and Anderson Varejao. There were also promising young players like J.J. Hickson, Ramon Sessions and Mo Williams.
The third level of players were the prospects who had yet to prove themselves in the NBA. This list included Christian Eyenga, Jawad Williams, Samardo Samuels, Manny Harris and Danny Green.
Unfortunately, the Cavs had a cut to make to trim their roster down to the required 15-player maximum.
The ultimate decision came down to Harris or Green, with the Cavs opting for the undrafted rookie out of Michigan in Harris.
Fast-forwarding to today, Harris and Green have taken very different career paths.
Green has started every game this season for the San Antonio Spurs, who at 45-13 have the NBA's best record.
Harris currently plays for Azovmash of the Ukrainian League, unable to land another NBA job after the Cavs waived the 23-year-old back in July 2012.
Green would have been a great young talent to keep around on the Cavaliers. He can play either wing position and is a good athlete who benefited from his years at North Carolina.
This season alone Green has become one of the NBA's best three-point shooters, connecting on 43.1 percent of his attempts from downtown. He averages 10.6 points and 3.2 rebounds per game while making 2.3 three-pointers per game.
Green wasn't even close to the player he is now when the Cavs cut him back in 2010, but looking at some of the names the Cavs kept over him makes it very clear that they made a mistake in letting the former Tar Heel go.
