According to a tweet sent by either Mary Schmitt Boyer or Jodie Valade (they share access to @PDcavsinsider), restricted free agent Alonzo Gee would prefer to stay a member of the Cavaliers.

As best we can tell, no other club has made an offer to Gee. It was reported that Gee was upset that the Cavaliers extended only the qualifying offer sheet to Gee, which they had to do in order to make him a restricted free agent. The Cavaliers were expected to match whatever deal Gee could get from another club. Before free agency began the Phoenix Suns were rumored to be players for the swing-man.
What nobody saw coming was the lack of interest on the rest of the league in Gee, who averaged 10.6 points and 5.1 rebounds for the Cavaliers last season.
If Gee really wanted to be a Cavalier, all he would have to do is sign Cleveland’s offer sheet. That would give him a contract for this season and make him an unrestricted free agent next year. Best guess? He is trying to coax a multi-year deal from the Cavaliers.
