Free Agency Rumors
Kendrick Perkins joined the Cavaliers at LeBron James’ minicamp in Santa Barbara, Calif., and will come to training camp next week, sources told cleveland.com. Perkins, 32, played for the Cavs in 2014-15 and was out of the NBA last season. He’s interested in an NBA comeback and is apparently in great shape, judging by the team photo shared by multiple Cavs on their various social media platforms.
Perkins, a 13-year vet who averaged 5.4 points and 5.8 boards for his career, is not eligible for Cleveland’s remaining “two-way” contract. Those are new to the NBA this year and are meant for players who will spend time in both the developmental, minor “G” League and the NBA. Players with more than three years of NBA service can’t sign a two-way contract. The Cavs have now filled 19 of 20 spots for camp invitees. Perkins signed as a free agent with Cleveland in 2015, and filled the fabled “enforcer” role on the Cavs’ bench.
Darren Wolfson: As stated on @1500ESPN today and on recent podcasts for weeks, free agent Aaron Brooks is worth watching to fill the #Twolves guard want. This still holds true from last night. Look for it to happen and for him to be on the court w/ the #Twolves Saturday.
