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

Alonzo Gee has not gotten any offers from other teams. It's a shame, too, since he's worked so hard since coming to the #Cavaliers to reshape his game. He's what's right about the league. Many expect him to sign the $2.7 million qualifying offer and become UFA next summer. Sulia

If Alonzo Gee is re-signed, he'll probably start at small forward. First-round pick Dion Waiters will be given every opportunity to start at 2. Miles could get a lot of minutes as the backup at 2 and 3, maybe as much as 25 minutes. Sulia

Talks between #Cavs and Alonzo Gee remain slow, but ongoing. Talked today with Gee's agent, Andre Buck, who didn't rule out accepting Cavs qualifying offer. “I don’t see accepting the qualifying offer as a bad option for Alonzo,” Buck said. “If that’s the best option, we’ll exercise that option. There’s nothing wrong with being an unrestricted free agent next year.” Sulia

Sam Amico: Cavs meeting with free agent SF C.J. Miles (Jazz) Weds & Thurs, source says. Not close to deal with Alonzo Gee, may consider other options. Twitter

Speaking of free agents, there doesn't seem to be much of a market for Cavs forward Alonzo Gee to date. There has been no offer for the Cavs to match. One agent said he'd recommend the 6-foot-6 forward to take the $2.7 million qualifying offer he was offered. Talk of him getting a four-year, $16 million offer from the Suns is long gone. The Cavs could still make him a multiyear offer that would be extremely cap friendly. Cavs forward Luke Harangody took his qualifying offer in almost record time, which was a smart move. He was probably facing a minimum make-good contract elsewhere or a deal in Europe. He jumped on the $1.1 million offer from the Cavs. News-Herald

On the cusp of the NBA free agency period, the Cleveland Cavaliers extended an olive branch to small forward Alonzo Gee, ensuring that the team would have the ability to match any offer he received in order to keep the athletic swingman with the team. Fox 8′s John Telich reported on Tuesday evening that Gee is “underwhelmed” by the team’s offer — one that he has yet to sign — and is considering not participating in the team’s Summer League program which is set to tip of in Las Vegas later this month.
