CLEVELAND -- Guard Dajuan Wagner will become a free agent after this season because the Cleveland Cavaliers declined their $3.4 million contract
option for 2005-06 on Friday.
Wagner's brief NBA career has been slowed by injuries, but if he has a breakout season in 2004-05, the team could still try to re-sign him.
The sixth overall pick in the 2002 draft, Wagner has shown flashes of being a productive player. He averaged 13.4 points in 47 games as a rookie and
6.5 last season in 44 games. He missed 33 games after knee surgery.
Wagner sprained his ankle during the preseason and might begin the regular season on the injured list.
