Cavaliers Do Not Have Deal With Alonzo Gee, Will Not Buy Out Omri Casspi, According To Report

On Sunday, the Cleveland Plain Dealer refuted reports stating that Cleveland Cavaliers forward Alonzo Gee has re-signed with the team. It had been reported that Gee and the Cavs had agreed to a three-year, $10 million extension, but the Plain Dealer said its sources said that was untrue.

The Plain Dealer also reported that the Cavs are not considering buying out forward Omri Casspi, who was acquired by the team in a trade for J.J. Hickson. Casspi has been a disappointment in Cleveland, averaging 7 points and 3.5 rebounds per game on only 40 percent shooting from the field and 31.5 percent shooting from the three-point line. That said, the Cavs are apparently still willing to invest in Casspi's development.
