Alonzo Gee

In the NBA, a player rarely comes back from the offseason with a completely new look.

In Alonzo Gee’s case, he has returned with a completely new game.

The Cavaliers small forward could be the team’s most improved player from last season. Heading into the Phoenix Suns game at 9 p.m. Thursday at U.S. Airways Center, he’s averaging 8.3 points, 3.4 rebounds, 2.3 assists and 1.4 steals.

The 6-foot-6, 219-pound Gee started his transformation last year when he started 29 games with the Cavs (4-5). Now coming off the bench behind starter Omri Casspi at small forward, he makes things happen when he’s on the court.

“I’m going to keep getting better,” Gee said. “Hopefully, I can be consistent on my shot if I continue to shoot.”
