The Cavaliers are not likely to make any splashy moves this season but there is a chip they can and likely will cash either this year or during the offseason and that’s Alonzo Gee. With $3.25 million owed this season and a non-guaranteed $3 million next year the Cavs have set Gee up as trade bait. HoopsWorld

Cavs forward Alonzo Gee inadvertently kneed Durant in the back while driving to the basket with 6:04 left in the third quarter, causing Durant to briefly leave the game two minutes later. After returning to the bench moments later, Durant returned to the game with 9:55 remaining in the fourth and finished the game. Despite what appeared to be extreme discomfort, Durant downplayed the injury when asked about it. “If I can play, I'm all right,” Durant said. “I was good. I came (back) in and played so that's all that matters.” Oklahoman

"I actually was trying to talk to him," Gee said, "but it wasn't working." Indeed, nothing Gee tried bothered Pierce in the least as the Celtics' veteran forward, who has torched the Cavs so many times in the regular season and the playoffs, went off for a season-high 40 points to lead the Celtics to a 103-91 victory. Pierce made 13 of 16 shots, six of seven 3-pointers as the Celtics snapped a three-game losing streak to improve to 13-12. "I was like, 'Man calm down a little bit,'" Gee said with a smile. "He said, 'I'm just trying to make you better.' "It's all good though. He played a great game and made a lot of shots." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Chris Paul asked Byron Scott to stop using Alonzo Gee on him defensively. Scott made that shocking revelation today after practice. He has been calling Gee one of the league's best defenders for a few days and is trying to prove it by using him to defend multiple positions. Apparently at some point during Monday's Cavs win over the Clippers, Paul jogged by Scott and told him "take him off me" and wanted Kyrie Irving to defend him instead. "Why you got him guarding me? Let the young fella guard me," Paul told Scott. "I said, 'Young fella has guarded you. He said, 'Well you threw me in the fire, made me guard all those guys.'" Sulia

If a deal is reached with Gee, source says, it will likely be closer to training camp in late September. But, it appears, Cavs will keep Casspi. Much of that depends on Casspi, and whether or not he wants to return overseas. Otherwise, "he's not available" for other NBA teams. Sulia

The deal doesn't preclude the Cavs from trying to re-sign swingman Alonzo Gee. The restricted free agent has yet to find a deal this summer. If the Cavs can't sign Gee to a multiyear deal, he could sign his $2.7 million qualifying offer and become an unrestricted free agent next summer. News-Herald
