Cleveland Cavaliers reach out to free agent Tayshaun PrinceWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
FRESNO, Calif. – In an effort to shore up wing depth, the Cleveland Cavaliers have reached out to the representatives of free agent small forward Tayshaun Prince, league sources informed Northeast Ohio Media Group.
With the free-agency period beginning, conversations up to this point have been described as exploratory, sources say.
Prince, 35, played for Memphis, Boston, and Detroit last season and averaged 7.5 points, 3.6 rebounds and shot 46 percent from long distance.
The 6-9 wiry forward is still a defensive presence on the perimeter and would serve as a replacement to Shawn Marion who never made an impact on the court in his final season in the league.
At this juncture in the free-agency period, the Cavaliers have other matters to tend to before filling out the roster. Prince and the Cavaliers will resume dialogue at a later time, I'm told.
