What’s next for the Cleveland Cavaliers?

  • July 9, 2021

Posted September 21, 2018 03:00:22The Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired guard Dion Waiters from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for point guard Darrun Hilliard and guard Jahlil Okafor.

Waiters, a 6-foot-7 guard from Florida, is an unrestricted free agent.

Hilliard, a forward out of Kansas, is averaging 11.8 points and 4.7 rebounds in 28.2 minutes a game this season for the Raptors.

Okafor, a shooting guard from Oregon, has appeared in three games for the Cavaliers this season, averaging 8.0 points and 5.7 boards.

The Cavs, who finished 29-34 last season, also have waived forward Terrence Jones.

The Cavaliers, who lost All-Star guard Kyrie Irving to the Dallas Mavericks, will play their first game without their starting center, Kyrie.

Irving will miss at least the next five games because of a bruised left shoulder.

The Cavs have been without LeBron James, Kyler Murray, Jae Crowder and Dion Waiter since Irving’s injury.
