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.
The NBA's 30 teams have just been notified that Phoenix has won waiver auction for Luis Scola— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) July 15, 2012
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.
