"I was excited (when he heard of the trade)," Waiters said. "I get to come to an organization that has been to the Finals, with young talented guys. And there are big expectations here also. I would love to be a part of something like that. This is a business, at the end of the day…(The Cavaliers) wanted to go in a different direction. I'm just happy they sent me here, to another great organization where I get a chance to play with another great player as far as Russ, Kev, and the other guys. I think I'm in a win-win situation. I take it as a positive thing." USA Today Sports
