Could Cleveland Cavaliers small forward Alonzo Gee be an unrestricted free agent in 2013?

With the Las Vegas summer league over and teams still scooping up free agents, Gee, dubbed a priority just one month earlier, remains unsigned. The Cavaliers extended a $2.7 million offer sheet to Gee, but the NBDL pick-up-turned-starter has yet to receive an offer from any of the other 29 NBA franchises.

The Cavaliers presently have the leverage in the situation as teams continue to spend what little salary cap money they have available, allowing Chris Grant and company to offer Gee a multi-year deal at a lower per-year salary than maybe originally estimated, but if Gee forgoes this option and signs the qualifying offer, he could be an unrestricted free agent come next summer. Per The News-Herald’s Bob Finan, Gee’s agent Andre Buck has not returned any messages on the matter. Earlier this month, it was reported that Gee was a bit unhappy with the lack of discussion from the Cavaliers.

In his first season as a primary rotation player, Gee averaged 10.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per game, starting in 31 of the team’s 66 contests.
