Found July 07, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

According to The Plain Dealer’s Mary Schmitt Boyer, the Cavaliers are one of multiple teams with some level of interest in Minnesota power forward Anthony Tolliver. Tolliver, an unrestricted free agent, is 27 and has been in the league for four years spending time with San Antonio, Portland, and Golden State before Minnesota the last two years.

Count #Cavs among teams with some interest in UFA Anthony Tolliver

— M.S. Boyer/J. Valade (@PDcavsinsider) July 7, 2012

He averaged 4.1 points and 3.0 rebounds, playing in 51 games averaging 17.3 minutes per contest. In 2009-2010, his best season, Tolliver spent most of his time with the Warriors and averaged over 12 points and 7 rebounds a game while shooting 33% from three-point range. At 6’8″ and 240 lbs, Tolliver is about the same build as Antawn Jamison and the Cavs could be trying to grab some of that stretch four ability lost by not having Jamison on the cheap. If he lands in Cleveland, Tolliver would compete for big man minutes with Anderson Varejao, Tristan Thompson, first round pick Tyler Zeller, Samardo Samuels, and undrafted free agent Kevin Jones.

They include Houston, Dallas, and… Cleveland? Dallas and Cleveland are among teams with cap space that would interest Bynum in 2013...

Cavs' patience in free agency makes sense

Theres no need to panic over the Cavaliers lack of moves in free agency. I write that for a couple of reasons: 1. Owner Dan Gilbert said a long time ago he believes the draft and trades are the two most important aspects of building a team -- implying that signing free agents is a distant third. General manager Chris Grant agrees. 2. The Cavs arent alone when it comes to being...

Cavs Tristan Thompson to headline #Battle4Ohio Game for Team Cleveland

The Battle for Ohio Celebrity Game tips off at noon ET in Columbus tomorrow, and Tristan Thompson will be headlining the event for Team Cleveland. Pretty cool of the Canada native to adapt his new area code as his own and make that trek down I-71 to participate I think. Evan Turner, who averaged 11 and 8 during 13 playoff games for the Sixers this past season, will be headlining...
