CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Cavaliers are on the verge of making their first free agent signing of the summer.
According to a league source, the team has agreed to the structure of a contract with veteran guard Anthony Parker. The deal is not finalized, but is expected to be completed in the next several days.
Trying to figure out what problems Anthony Parker solves for us. I guess he helps with our issue of having a small back court. I wouldn't say he's a great scorer or distributor though. Will he be able to increase the Cavs offensive production and our backcourt defense? shrug.
He's the perfect role player and glue guy. Always knows what to say good veteran presence, plays decent defence and can handle both the PG and SG he will suprise you guys. He was the one player could count on when he was with the Raps. Good luck Parker!
I think Anthony Parker is a nice consolation prize. He wouldn't come as expensive as a few big names but he would still fill the Cavaliers' need as a defensive stopper and an occasional scorer from the perimeter. The East is going to be really interesting.
