Cleveland was also considering Mario Chalmers, Douglas’ former teammate Norris Cole, and Kirk Hinrich. Because Douglas’ contract isn’t guaranteed, each remains an option while the Cavs wait to see if Douglas or any of the players they already had on the roster can handle the point. Those options include rookie Kay Felder as well as Jordan McRae and DeAndre Liggins.
While Griffin said he felt “comfortable” with the Cavs’ current point guard situation — behind Kyrie Irving now is only rookie Kay Felder — the team has on its radar free agents Norris Cole, Mario Chalmers, and Kirk Hinrich. The Cavs have been in contact with all three players this summer, a source said, in anticipation of Williams’ move. But the team, at least at this point, is in no rush to sign one of them, preferring to let the 5-9, 21-year-old Felder get his feet wet in camp and see if Lue can work his rotation properly without them.
Mario Chalmers said he wasn’t sending any signals when he posted a workout photo on Instagram, that he just happened to be wearing Heat shorts while working back from last season’s Achilles injury that has him lingering on the free-agent market. “When u enjoy the process of gettin back to the grind, you enjoy the grind and your happy the results,” Chalmers posted on Instagram. “Wat u put in is wat u get out.” He added, to resolve any speculation, “Don’t worry bout the heat shorts. Doesn’t mean I’m goin back there.” While Chalmers is eligible to be signed by the Heat, who dealt him to the Memphis Grizzlies last November in a tax-saving trade, such prospects would appear unlikely with the Heat loaded with possibilities at point guard with Goran Dragic, Beno Udrih, Briante Weber, Tyler Johnson and Josh Richardson.
