David Lighty's mom would more than love for him to be a Cavalier.
Former Ohio State Buckeye and Cleveland native David Lighty will have a chance to impress his hometown Cleveland Cavaliers. He will take part in a free agent workout with the Cavs on June 28, via Mary Schmitt Boyer of The Cleveland Plan Dealer:
How much would his mother love it if he wound up playing for the Cavs?
"'Love' would be an understatement," Lighty said, laughing. "That's big for her. She came to Italy and saw me play last year and told me, 'I just miss seeing you play.' Being back here would make that possible."
Lighty played for Bennet Cantu and Vanoli in Italy in 2011-2012 after going undrafted in 2011. He returned to Cleveland in May, but has since worked out with the San Antonio Spurs and will visit the Indiana Pacers on June 21.
