NBA Free Agency 2012: Cavs Unable To Land Forward Luis Scola On Amnesty Waivers

After putting in a bid to hopefully bolster their frontcourt, the Cleveland Cavaliers were not awarded the rights to recently-waived Rockets big man Luis Scola in Sunday's waiver auction according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

A 6-foot-9 power forward who holds career averages of 14.5 points and 7.7 rebounds, Scola will offer the Suns a cost-effective option as either a starter or a sixth man. Though he would have been a wonderful addition in a Cavs uniform next to Tristan Thompson, it's clear that gifted player with a developed skill-set such as Scola would be a solid fit on any roster in the league.
