Cleveland Cavaliers Rumors
Chris Fedor: #Cavs had Evan Mobley in mind with the Ed Davis signing: “I want him to reach his full potential. Has a chance to make like $500 million in this league. But you have to perform, the team has to win, you have to stay healthy. Teaching him the process that it takes to get there”
Chris Fedor: #Cavs Ed Davis on his role: “I’m authentic with everything. For these guys, I’m not in competition. I’m not trying to beat out J.A. for his minutes or take the rookie’s minutes. Anything that is coming from me is coming from an honest place. I know my role. I know why I’m here”
Cavs center Tacko Fall will be included in the “NBA Giants” segment on the next episode of HBO’s Real Sports, which airs from 10-11 p.m. ET on Oct. 19 and streams on HBO Max. The show looks at some of the world’s tallest men — standing 7-5 or more — who have been lured to America from overseas to try to make it in the NBA. Fall, 7-5 and 311 pounds, was born in Dakar, Senegal.
Veteran big man Ed Davis received a one-year, non-guaranteed contract. A source tells cleveland.com that coach J.B. Bickerstaff pushed for the acquisition of the 32-year-old Davis, known around the league as one of the best locker-room guys and mentors.
How long Davis remains on the roster is uncertain at this point, but he’s expected to fill the last spot to start the year, giving the Cavaliers more frontcourt depth — and another trusted voice that can help guide this young roster.
