According to Yahoo Sports, it appears that former Celtics forward Leon Powe will now become the latest addition to the Cleveland Cavaliers. It is being reported that Powe will sign a two year deal for the league minimum. The second year will be a team option.
Having tore his ACL during the 1st round of the Celtics playoff matchup Chicago, it appears that Powe will not be ready to return until next year's all-star break. Powe is known for his energetic play. His most notable career acheivement was the 21 pts he scored in game 2 of the 2008 NBA finals against the Los Angeles Lakers in just 15 mins of play. Once a fan favorite in Boston, it appears likely that Powe will be bringing his energy and hustle to Cleveland pending the results of a physical with the Cavalier's medical staff.
The addition of Powe will most assuredly add to the depth of the Cleveland Cavaliers who have had a very busy summer, adding Anthony Parker, Jamario Moon, and future Hall of Famer, Shaquille O'Neal. Whether the addition of Powe will be enough to help get the Cavs through the much improved Eastern Conference remains to be seen, but one can safely say that Powe will be bringing the same heart and hustle to Cleveland.
