Jason_kapono_talks_9352

Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! reports via his twitter that the Cavaliers won’t have to worry about what number Jason Kapono might wear.

Now that that’s solved, all that remains is to figure out what the Cavs will be able to get out of Luke Walton. It seemed like the Cavs weren’t treating Walton like just a body in a trade.

Then again, I might have thought the Cavs could use a three point specialist like Kapono on a very tiny salary (by NBA terms) of $1.2 million.
