According to Fox 8’s John Telich, the Cleveland Cavaliers have submitted a bid on the waiver wires for recently amnesty-waived Houston Rockets forward Luis Scola.
Earlier in the week, it was reported that the Cavs and Dallas Mavericks would be the two leading contenders for Scola’s services. The 32-year-old forward has averaged 14.5 points and 7.7 rebounds during his five-year NBA career, entirely with Houston.
On Saturday, Fox Sports Ohio’s Sam Amico tweeted that a move likely will not be made officially until Monday, when it will be 48 hours since Scola was waived.
He’s set to make slightly over $30 million over the next three seasons. The team that places the highest sealed-envelope bid will win the claim for Scola and pay that portion of his salary for the 2012-13 schedule.
