Byron Scott will switch up rotation for preseason finale, Dion Waiters back to 6th man?

David Richard-US PRESSWIRE

Byron Scott is searching for his regular season rotation in the final week of training camp.

Byron Scott will use the team's final preseason game as an opportunity to switch his lineup, as he attempts to establish a regular season rotation in the final week of training camp.

Jason Lloyd of Ohio.com speculates that this will mean inserting Alonzo Gee into the starting lineup, which will move C.J. Miles to the shooting guard spot and rookie Dion Waiters to the bench in the sixth man role.

Scott wants to see the differences in defensive energy that various combinations can bring on the court, as he doesn't feel his team fully understands the effort required to be successful on the defensive end of the floor.

In other news, Kyrie Irving missed the second half of Monday's practice after catching an elbow to his eye. Although Irving's eye swelled up immediately, the injury is not expected to be serious.

The Cavaliers will play Indiana on Tuesday, in what will be their final preseason tuneup before they open the regular season against the Washington Wizards on Oct. 30.
