Cleveland Cavaliers Rumors
“You know man, he’s just a regular dude,” says Jarrett Jack, who’s been close to Lou for the past 15 years. “One thing that I love about him—he seems like that regular dude that’s just from the neighborhood. Through and through, he’s still a ‘Let me get a 10-piece wings’ guy.” “He’s your favorite player’s favorite player,” adds Mike Scott, a friend of Lou’s since they were first teammates on the Hawks. “Lou is like an uncle. He’s just cool with everybody and everybody respects him. He’s like an old soul, man. He looks young, but Lou is really, like, 60.” “He’s Uncle Lou,” says Jordan Clarkson, who played with Williams on the Lakers. “He’s on his own wave, he’s on his own vibe. He’s going to do what he wants to do. I think that’s why people look at him and respect him for who he is.”
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Andrew Wiggins wasn’t included among the list which features NBA rookies R.J. Barrett and Nickeil Alexander-Walker along with NCAA players such as Andrew Nembard, EuroLeaguers like Kevin Pangos and the expected NBA suspects in Jamal Murray, Tristan Thompson and Cory Joseph.
Will Guillory: David Griffin says he’s been intrigued by Derrick Favors since he was the GM in Cleveland. Believes Favors has a great opportunity to show how good he can be now that he can play center full time.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Once guard JR Smith clears waivers, the Los Angeles Lakers are an unlikely destination, league sources tell ESPN.
J.R. Smith has officially been waived and will have a $1.45M cap over the next three seasons. Cleveland will receive a $555K set-off if Smith signs a $2.6M veteran minimum exception with another team.
