NBA Free Agency: Cavs Will Match Offers For Alonzo Gee, According To Report

Speculation involving Cleveland Cavaliers forward Alonzo Gee seemed to indicate that the 25 year old wouldn't be playing in Cleveland for much longer a while ago. As an RFA, a host of teams were reportedly looking at him including the Suns, Celtics and Hawks.

However, it looked likely that the Cavs were prepared to match offers that were given for Gee and a tweet released by John Telich on Friday seems to indicate that they will be indeed be doing just that.

Naturally, the deal is probably off if a team offers some sort of ridiculous price for him but that seems unlikely for a player of Gee's pedigree. Assuming no team wants him quite that badly, Gee will mostly likely remain a Cavalier in his third pro season.

The ever improving young small forward averaged 10.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per game for the Cavs during last year's campaign.
