It looks like the Cleveland Cavaliers are about to reward the hard work of one Alonzo Gee. According to a tweet from FOX 8's John Telich, Gee will reportedly sign a three-year deal worth around $10 million with the Cavs.
It's been a long road to get to this point for Gee. Undrafted out of the University of Alabama, Gee had to fight his way through the D-League before finally getting his shot on the big stage. The 2010 D-League Rookie of the Year seems to have always played his best while with the Cavs and is now being rewarded for it.
Gee first played for the Cavaliers for 40 games during the 2010-11 season before returning last season to play in 63 games, starting 31. He played the most minutes per game of his career (29.0) and his production improved to double-figure scoring (10.6 ppg) while adding 5.1 rpg.
