This sounds familiar. Both in 2010 and then again in March, the Cavs reportedly targeted PG Jonny Flynn, the former Syracuse star who has fizzled thus far in the NBA.

Now, today, we’re seeing from the Akron Beacon Journal’s Jason Lloyd that Cleveland again is rumored to target Flynn when free agency begins soon.

Everyone rightfully focused on draft, but free agency begins Sunday. Expect #Cavs to pursue unrestricted free agent Jonny Flynn to be the backup point guard. Interest there on both sides.

Several reports over the past few weeks have had Flynn in the Cleveland area for workouts, occasionally alongside Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Cleveland’s possible selection in the first round tomorrow.

Flynn was the No. 6 pick in the 2009 draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves, the year they took three point guards in the first round. He has struggled in limited playing time, just averaging 9.2 points and 3.9 assists on 40% shooting in 163 career games, averaging 22.9 minutes per contest. Most recently, the 23-year-old finished last season with the Portland Trailblazers.

Behind Kyrie Irving, the Cavs have a non-guaranteed contract for Donald Sloan and a team option for Daniel Gibson. Sloan impressed late last year, but doesn’t have quite the same high-profile pedigree. Gibson occasionally plays both guard positions, but lacks ideal size.
