Can Larry bang at the 5? That's my concern.

Zizic is a guy they can bring back if they want to. Kevon Looney was declined by the Warriors and brought back. So it does happen from time to time. Unlikely. For all we know he may want to return to Europe.

I suspect the Cavs will be thinking about depth up front in any trades this season. They likely will want a young big back in any Clarkson trade if they are able to get that.
Lots of guard depth, weak at bigs and wings. Maybe when Windler comes back we are good at the wings? We are inexperienced. I like McKinnie enough to have him be the 3rd string sf. I was a little surprised we didn't see him in Philly.

If Windler is a quick study and can stay healthy, I'm optimistic. They seem to be trying to find heady players for depth.

Hard to see him getting much game time in final 28 games, can he still be a two way player next season?

He had 3 blocks in the Clippers game. Looked good.

Can he play small forward?

Maybe they shut Kevin love down at the end of the year. Id like to see Wade at that point.

Don’t understand, we suck, no way we are making the playoffs. None of our current bigs (I hope) are part of our long term future. Why not give him a run
I wonder if there is some reasoning for not playing him because he is on a two way contract. I know Koby has tried to sign guys to 2 year two way contracts but I can't find anything confirming that Dean Wade is on a 1 or 2 year contract.

The one thing I've never been able to figure out is if the 45 NBA days are for each year or total days with the NBA team. Also there could be some cap stuff and roster construction that comes into play for next season.

It seems like they like Dean Wade and all of this might be to make sure they keep him under team control for as long as possible. They have 10 guys under contract next year plus at least one draft pick. They will have to make decisions on if they want to bring back Zizic and Delly. TT could also come back or be part of a sign and trade. So they could be easily up to 14 players which Koby like to stay at before the deadline. They most likely want to leave wiggle room for an extra draft pick, undrafted player, and/or free agent.

I heard Wade was a RFA this offseason. Don't make me prove it, I am not sure where i saw it, and my knowledge of 2 way contracts is nada.

He's played great when he had the chance. I can't imagine they are low on him. He shoots too well, and seems to have a high IQ.

The Miami Heat are a pretty good basketball team. They played the Cavs these last couple nights without Jimmy Butler. The Heat have three undrafted players in their rotation. If Wade can be a good NBA player, it's like finding gold as far as I'm concerned.

We are going to have to wait for fan appreciation night. I'm pretty surprised with the injuries we have had earlier in the year that he hasn't played.
