    Default High-Risk/ High Reward + Niagara Kid >>> guard Jonny Flynn

    Free-agent guard Jonny Flynn worked out with the Cavaliers on Monday and performed well for General Manager Chris Grant and coach Byron Scott, according to an NBA source. Flynn (6-0, 185) played in 29 games for Portland and Houston last season, averaging 4.5 points and 3.3 assists. He could serve as a backup point guard to Kyrie Irving, thought that slot also could be filled by Donald Sloan, who finished last season in that position. Sloan performed well in the Cavaliers' summer league game Monday, leading a fourth-quarter rally and finishing with 19 points on 5-for-8 shooting.

    Flynn also is considering Chicago, Atlanta, Toronto and Orlando, according to an NBA source.

    Why not fill the roster with this kid...young...we can give him a non guarantee contract....another James Johnson risk.

    We just need to try rejuvenate him to his Rookie Stat level...we failed with JJ...but this is how you find gems...but taking such risks.

    Does he have the same potential as did James Johnson when we first got him back in 2011?

    I'd say it's low risk.

    Raptors said he wasn't under consideration already anyways.

    Does it make sense to bring in a 4th PG (assuming Lucas is a done deal) before Calderon is traded?

    Flynn is a tricky proposition. He recently (last yr I believe) had a hip operation. He has also failed to stick with Minny and Houston and I am unsure about his defense. At best I believe he would be at the John Lucas level and thats not saying much. I would rather try to mine the undrafted/unsigned rolls in the hope of finding a nugget.

    Aight,

    All your comments are fair ...I just thought he would be close to home and all - that may make a difference etc.
    In general, you all think for player at his level being home makes a big difference...I suppose not too much.

    But you all have made valid points and thus i guess we can close this Thread.

    THE END

    Great low risk move for raptors, could be the guy to replace calderon if he get's traded.
