Cleveland Cavaliers Rumors
The 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers have re-signed forward Richard Jefferson, Cavaliers General Manager David Griffin announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. Per league and team policy, terms of the contract were not released.
“RJ’s versatility on the court and leadership off it were core parts of our identity and success last year,” said David Griffin. “In many respects, his impact was greater as the stakes got higher. His NBA Finals performance is a testament to his dedicated, steady approach and his presence in our locker room throughout the year and postseason cannot be overstated. We’re very thankful he decided to continue his career and we know that his teammates appreciate what he brings to this team at a very deep level.”
In the meantime, Kenny Gabriel’s focus has been channeled towards the NBA as well.

The NBA champs liked what they saw from the 27-year old player in the Las Vegas Summer League, where he averaged 7.4 points and 3.7 rebounds per game with their jersey. Of course, the Cavs didn’t wait for this tournament in order to find out Gabriel’s positive attributes, which he has been steadily developing over the years.
