Donald Sloan could be the back-up PG for the Cleveland Cavaliers next season when training camp opens. Byron Scott has said that Dion Waiters will get some time spelling Kyrie Irving at the one, but after that there aren’t too many options.
There’s been talk of the Cavs bringing in a veteran free agent point guard this off-season, but nothing’s happened yet. Names like Johnny Flynn and Derek Fisher have been tossed around out there, but I’m not sure either guy is better than Donald Sloan right now. That, coupled with the Irving injury, has given Donald Sloan an extended opportunity to show the Cavs organization what he can do out here in Vegas.
I caught up with D-Sloan this week and he talked about all that, as well as his initial impressions of playing with Cavs rookies Dion Waiters and Tyler Zeller.
