John Beilein Rumors
“We want Dylan to shoot around 14 shots per game,” Antonio Lang said. “Got a little fatigued in the end. We used him a little bit too much and we have to find better ways to use him and he’s learning. Every game he’s getting better. The best thing about it, he was aggressive. That was the most important thing.”
Head coach John Beilein seem to squash any possibility of Porter suiting up. “No, I don’t expect it,” Beilein said following the Cavaliers’ Salt Lake City Summer League finale. “It’s up to the trainers with all this stuff. This is one area where I’m saying, ‘You know what? This is a long way from our season right now.’ We would love to have all those guys out there, just even (Jaron) Blossomgame would be helpful for us, but we don’t have that experience or those two great draftees we have.”
Cayleigh Griffin: Coach Beilein says that @Cedi Osman texted him today to say that he’s on the plane from Turkey to Vegas and he can’t wait to meet him. Coach says he looks forward to building off of what he already sees as incredible team chemistry. #BeTheFight
According to several people who were at Jackson’s gym that day, Garland didn’t miss a shot for five or six minutes. By the end of the display, new Cavs coach John Beilein couldn’t contain his excitement, his encouragement. He was vocal, cheering on Garland as shot after shot traveled to the bucket. Beilein, general manager Koby Altman and the huge contingent of Cavs deep thinkers there interviewed the 19-year-old after the workout, and the discussion was influenced by what they saw on the court. Five days later, the Cavs made Garland the fifth overall pick in the draft.
