And let the NBA rumor season begin. In his Sunday column, The Morning Journal’s Bob Finnan speculates that one Cavs starter could be the target of some Western intrigue this summer:
Cavs forward Alonzo Gee might draw some serious interest this summer in free agency. The Suns could make a lucrative offer to Gee. One source said they could offer Gee a four-year, $16 million offer and hope that the Cavs don’t match it.
Gee was a nice contributor last year for the Cavs, but long term, he is just a role player for the squad. That $4 million price tag is a bit much, and it’s odd that a team like the Suns would again be in the market for a role player like Gee. It will be interesting to see if the Cavs also draft at Gee’s position in three weeks, a point that Matt Moore made over at Pro Basketball Talk today as well.
