Free Agency Rumors

Cavaliers adding Kendrick Perkins

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.
