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.
Revisiting the Williams scenario, the other potential backup to Kyrie Irving at point guard on the roster is rookie Kay Felder. A source confirmed Cleveland’s interest in free agent point guard Norris Cole, among others, but said the Cavs likely wouldn’t bring in a veteran free agent until Williams’ status — and capability — was determined. Williams played on a bad left knee last season.
