The Cleveland Cavaliers have joined the conversation of acquiring the services of Luis Scola off amnesty waivers, as Marc Stein has been reporting via Twitter. Stein reports that Cleveland joins the Dallas Mavericks as teams with "certifiable interest" in making the long term commitment to Scola, who is owed well over $10 million in the next three years.
Latest amnesty scuttle: Cavs, I'm told, weighing up bid for Luis Scola. They've been fans of him for a while. Issue will be long-term cost— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 14, 2012
Any team that bids for Scola must commit to minimum of $3+ mil in Year 1 & $10+ mil over three years. Cavs join Mavs w/certifiable interest— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 14, 2012
Hearing Cavs quietly made it known during Draft they'd listen to Varejao trade pitches. Gotta wonder: Would Scola make it easier to deal AV?— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 14, 2012
