From the unpredictable roads of Moscow to the capricious streets of Miami, Quinn has navigated himself back to a place that felt like home from the moment he joined the Heat in the 2006 offseason after going undrafted out of Notre Dame that year. “We’ve always kept in touch,” said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, who was an assistant for the start of Quinn’s playing tenure with the Heat. “And when I coached Chris, I always thought he would eventually make a good coach one day. I viewed him as a coach on the floor, somebody I really respect to get every ounce out of his ability to end up playing almost seven years in this league. “And we kept in touch over the years. In fact, this past year, when we were in Chicago, we got together for dinner and I told him then that, ‘Hey, one of these days if this is truly what you want to do, let’s continue to talk. Down the line I may be coming after you.’ And it happened a little bit sooner than we even thought about back then.”
The Cleveland Cavaliers have waived forward Kevin Jones and guard Chris Quinn, Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. Jones played in 32 games this past season for the Cavs, averaging 3.0 points and 2.4 rebounds in 10.5 minutes per game. Quinn played in seven games for the Cavs, averaging 1.4 points and 1.3 assists in 11.3 minutes per game.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed guard Chris Quinn from the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Development League for the remainder of the season, Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. The signing of Quinn marks the 28th GATORADE Call-Up of the 2012-13 season. Per league and team policy, terms of the contract were not announced. Quinn will wear No. 20 for the Cavaliers and be active for tonight’s game against the Miami Heat at Quicken Loans Arena. In 25 games (23 starts) this season for the 66ers, Quinn has averaged 12.7 points on .475 shooting, 2.6 rebounds, 6.1 assists and 1.3 steals in 32.4 minutes per game.
The injury bug has bitten the Cleveland Cavaliers hard as of late. Already without Kyrie Irving and Anderson Varejao, the Cavs recently learned that Dion Waiters will sit out a week to nurse a sore knee. The guard may end up needing surgery. Unable to find a way to quite stop the bleeding just yet, a source tells that Cleveland will turn to the NBA D-League for a bandaid of sorts. The source says the Cavaliers will bring aboard NBA veteran and current Tulsa 66ers guard Chris Quinn, who was not seen in uniform on Tuesday night when his team took on the number one seeded Bakersfield Jam. A five year veteran of three NBA teams, Quinn last appeared in The Association during the 2010-11 season with San Antonio. He was also one of final cuts during training camp last fall with the Utah Jazz.
So, for now, Quinn is back in his offseason home of Columbus, Ohio, doing drills and cardio work with a trainer to try to simulate NBA shape. But nothing can substitute for going up and down the floor, again and again, day after day. Quinn’s agent, Mark Bartlestein, works the phones to Europe and basketball leagues around the world and in the States. “He’s an NBA player, no question about it,” Bartlestein said. “He proved it this preseason. If the right opportunity came over in Europe, he’d take a look at it.”
