Joey Graham was waived Friday by the Cleveland Cavaliers in a move that will certainly send shock waves throughout the NBA

Signed last offseason in the hopes the Cavaliers could still remain somewhat competitive, Graham found himself on the bench for most of the second half of the season while Byron Scott went with a youth movement. 

The stats themselves weren't pretty, as Graham put up 5.2 points and 2.2 rebounds a game while seeing action in only 39 contests.  His player efficiency rating of 7.78 was by far the worst of any Cavalier.

With the trade of J.J. Hickson to the Kings for small forward Omri Casspi, it was clear Graham's time in Cleveland would quickly be coming to an end.

Major contenders will undoubtedly be lining up to snag the big free-agent prize, with Minnesota, Toronto and Detroit rumored to be in the mix.

While the addition of Graham would likely propel any of these teams to championship levels, rumor has it Joey has his eyes Hollywood and beginning his acting career.

Although it hasn't yet been confirmed, all bets are on Joey and twin brother Stephen remaking the timeless Olsen twin classic It Takes Two.

Best of luck Joey. Best of luck.
