Cavs add Wesley

Guard David Wesley, who averaged 9.9 points and 2.9 assists last season with the Houston Rockets, will join a loaded Cavalier backcourt. Despite his tangible stats, it’s the intangibles that Wesley brings to the table that excites Ferry and the Cavaliers.

“He’s going to be a great addition to our team,” said Cavs General Manager Danny Ferry. “David adds a wealth of experience and professionalism to our team. His defense, shooting and toughness will add to areas that we want to continue to grow this year.”

Wesley will earn $1.75 million this coming season and only a portion of his contract in year two is guaranteed. He’s looking forward to the upcoming season.

“I’ve got to be a little tougher because I’m smaller than the rest of the guys out there,” Wesley said. “I’m a pit bull, just go out and bite a leg if I have to.”

If nothing else, the Cavs are now loaded to the gills at the guard position. It’ll be up to coach Mike Brown to sort through all the players and come up with a decent rotation among all the guards. The Wesley signing no doubt brings greater depth and competition to the team for next season.
