Former Cavs general manager Chris Grant was high on Dion Waiters, he liked his ability to create and wanted the Cavs to have multiple ball handlers on the floor in Waiters and Kyrie Irving. The pairing, of course, never meshed. Waiters still has tremendous potential, but his attitude aggravated enough teammates, coaches and front office folks that he was finally dealt last season for a first-round pick that was eventually used on a center. Missing on Drummond cost the Cavs two first-round picks to acquire Timofey Mozgov. More on him later.
