NBA Free Agency 2012: Cavaliers Interested In Jonny Flynn

We've already warned you: The Cleveland Cavaliers are not planning to make big waves in the free agent market this summer.

This doesn't mean they will do absolutely nothing, however. A recent report loosely links Cleveland (and Atlanta) to free agent point guard Jonny Flynn, via Chris Haynes of

The unrestricted free agent point guard, Jonny Flynn, has received interest from the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Atlanta Hawks, a source tells

Currently the mutual interest is in its beginning stages and no visits have been arranged for the former Syracuse Orangemen standout as of yet.

Flynn has had an underwhelming NBA career after starring at Syracuse. He played 29 games last season split between the Houston Rockets and Portland Trail Blazers, averaging 4.5 points and 3.3 assists in 14.3 minutes per game.

The point guard was famously drafted No. 6 in the 2009 draft by the Minnesota Timberwolves. While his career has had a shaky start at least partially due to questionable fits and a serious hip injury, some general manager is sure to take another chance on the potential he exhibited before he was drafted. Perhaps it will be Cleveland's Chris Grant.

No free agent contracts can be signed until the NBA moratorium is lifted on July 11.
