According to FOX 8 Cleveland’s John Telich, the Cavaliers may be close to a three-year agreement with forward Alonzo Gee.

Gee and the Cavaliers have been in a long stalemate after the wine and gold offered him the $2.7 million qualifying offer to the restricted free agent from Alabama earlier in the summer. The Cavaliers chose not to wait around and instead signed free agent forward C.J. Miles to a 2-year, $4 million deal. Gee, the same age and size as Miles, averaged 10.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, and shot 41% from the field in 63 games (31 starts).
It’s likely that we will see Miles and Gee battle it out for the starting small forward spot, with the loser of that competition backing the other up along with logging some minutes backing up Dion Waiters at the two guard spot.
