Yeah, would be hard to justify ever giving him minutes over Wade, who's already on the team and arguably has more potential to develop into a handy roleplayer.
Best case for Wade is lesser Ryan Anderson. Maten is a better athlete and has some defensive upside. Neither will ever be a guy who gets over 20 MPG. But both have the potential to provide something but are both likely Gleague fodder who gets a taste of the NBA before sliding into post basketball careers or Europe.

I dunno if lesser Ryan Anderson is the right comp. Lesser shooter, for sure, but he has a more well-rounded offensive game, and he should be a competent, if unremarkable, defender at the PF position.

More like Maxi Kleber with worse defense and athleticism. So basically not Maxi Kleber I guess.

His main role if he ever gets playing time will be stretching the floor. He may be a little better in some aspects but he's worse at the primary function of his role. I don't see a NBA future for Wade and Anderson has some how lasted 10+ years.

It's important to realize that he went undrafted because he had multiple foot injuries his senior season, not because he lacks NBA-level talent. He doesn't have a single obvious strength like Anderson, but he also doesn't have any serious weaknesses. If he stays healthy, which is unlikely but possible, he'll probably develop into a fine roleplayer.

With 13 players under contract and 2 2-way layers the Cavs are at 129.9 M in total salaries. Think they stay under the tax level both in picking up a 14th player and in future trades for our expiring contracts.

One tidbit -but doubt it has to be paid.

  • John Henson: Has an extra $250,000 for appearing in 60 games and an additional $500,000 for 75 games, according to Bobby Marks.
  • John Henson: There's an additional $4,000,000 in potential incentive compensation, HoopsHype has learned.

It will be interesting if he gets traded to make sure he doesn't hit those marks.

Meh. Not impressed with adding a guy with no future here for a season. Will likely steal developmental minutes from KPJ and Windler (When he comes back). Sad times.

Since we claimed him off waivers, I think we now have bird rights and the ability to make if a restricted free agent if we want.

If the plan is to keep both Sexton and Garland, we should really fill the SG and SF spots up with wings.

I was more so referencing his age not his contract situation. He's already 27. His age doesn't fit the time line.
