Luke Walton Will Not Be Bought Out By Cavaliers, According To Report

The Cleveland Cavaliers won't be buying out the contract of forward Luke Walton any time soon, according to the Twitter page of Cavs beat reporters Mary Schmitt Boyer and Jodie Valade.

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.
