Okafor hasn't played in 1 year. So what should he be paid highly.1
Without a place in the NBA, Cherry considered playing internationally last season. When those plans didn’t pan out, he joined the Cavaliers’ NBA Development League affiliate, the Canton Charge, in February. The coaching staff committed time and effort into getting back to basics with Cherry.
“Those last two months in the D-League were definitely a blessing in disguise,” Cherry told Basketball Insiders. ‘I know I was trying to get overseas before, it didn’t work out, and I think it happened for a reason. I was a new player coming in, a rookie, and [the coaches] really watched a lot of film with me and critiqued my game down to the lowest level. That’s what made me a lot better.”
Cherry averaged 11.6 points, 4.5 assists and 3.7 rebounds in 30.4 minutes over 18 games with the Charge. While he wasn’t the biggest player on the court, listed at 6’0, 185 pounds, he turned heads with well-rounded performances.http://www.basketballinsiders.com/nb...medium=twitter“I’m an all-around player,” Cherry said. “I try to rebound, block shots here and there if I could, steals. I try to do a little bit of everything. I think they call them stat stuffers. But for the most part, I’m out there trying to make it hard on the opposing offensive guard I’m going against and speed their offense up and get out in transition and get my teammates easy buckets. But just most of all, bringing that intensity on both sides of the game, offense or defense.”
On Friday, one week after the Cavs’ summer league finale, Yahoo! Sports reported Cherry is drawing interest from the Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors. It is a complete turnaround from his summer a year ago.

Basketball has clear winners every night --except at the draft, which is all homework, politics and chance.
I think Lou can fill in the 3, despite him being score-first. We really need a back-up big, cause Amir has slowed down the past season and a half, and Hayes is not a rotational big, other than a guy who only plays against bigger match-ups. Bebe is just not ready yet to be in the rotation. I really want Okafor, mainly because I feel like he would sign for the vet-minimum, and because Blatche isn't playing in the NBA this season.
I think having 3 solid point guards is important, but I'd rather have two solid players at the PG and the Centre positions.
Let's get Okafor. For real. Nigerian connection with Masai. Get it done.
and the winner in the end was 3rd string PG- Will Cherry (11.6 points, 4.5 assists, 3.7 rebounds and 1.4 steals per game in D-league last season)
I'm okay with this roster. Not one single bad contract left on the books. Now that Hayes and Fields are expiring I no longer consider them bad deals.
People I Will Shame When The Cavs Finish 8th
1.) Day One - 2) JordanMariam14 - 3) Stooley - 4) Ceez - 5) Sam17
6) mcHAPPY 7) ImanShumpert 8) Scraptor 9) Demographic Shift
Will Cherry is the 15th man but, I'd still like to trade Fields for a real back up center.
