Nate Reinking Rumors

Tristan Thompson and Matthew Dellavedova, who are free agents, Andre Drummond, who has a player option, and Cedi Osman, who’s still overseas, will not be in attendance. Four G-Leaguers from the Canton Charge – along with their coach Nate Reinking – will play in the Bubble: Matt Mooney, Marques Bolden, Levi Randolph and two-way player, Dean Wade. Everyone but Randolph spent time with the parent club last year.
