#Cavs also not expected to buy out Luke Walton, according to two NBA sources
The 32-year-old Walton was acquired by the Cavs in the trade that sent point guard Ramon Sessions to the Los Angeles Lakers in March. Walton appeared in 21 games for Cleveland in 2012 and averaged just 2.0 points, 1.7 rebounds and1.4 assists in a little more than 14 minutes each game off the bench.
Walton shot 35 percent from the field and 44 percent from the three-point line while wearing a Cavaliers uniform.
