Cavs preseason: Jon Leuer could find role as stretch 4

Cleveland Cavaliers forward Jon Leuer is looking for a home -- and the second-year player is hoping to carve out a role with the Cavaliers.

The Cavaliers represent Leuer's fourth team he's been apart of in his young career, and Cavs coach Byron Scott is optimistic that Leuer will be able to stick in Cleveland.

Leuer could sure use some stability right about now, and the Cavs could use a forward who can stretch the floor after the departure of Antawn Jamison.

"He can take up a little bit of what Antawn did for us because he does have a little 3-point range," Scott said. "One of the biggest problems is he thinks he's just OK. I don't think he has the confidence in himself right now to go out there and be able to produce on a night-to-night basis. But I think he does, and it's something he has to develop."

Leuer scored eight points and grabbed six rebounds in 23 minutes during Tuesday night's preseason game against the Milwaukee Bucks.
