(My Bucks team said nothing , but with their off season moves , it appears RP isn't a Buck)

Unless we could get him for the veterans minimum or something, I really have no interest. He's definitely skilled, but he's an undersized 3 really at 6'6" who has been playing the 4 spot out of position for the last year. He doesn't seem to have the outside abilities to play SG. He's a tweener who's sticking in the league on pure talent.

He doesn't seem to have qualities that fit well on the Cavs. We really need someone who can consistently hit some jumpshots and open things up a bit or a playmaker.

And as someone already said, his natural position seems to be the 3 spot, and he's not getting any minutes with Lebron, playing almost 43 minutes per game at that spot.
