Luke Harangody, Christian Eyenga Sent Down To Canton Charge

Cleveland Cavaliers general manager Chris Grant announced on Tuesday that Luke Harangody and Christian Eyenga would be sent down to the Canton Charge. This is one of the perks of owning a D-League team. The Cavs have the luxury of sending down players whenever they please.

Both guys have spent time in Canton earlier this season and are presumably down there again so that they can get some more playing time. It doesn't look like either has a chance of cracking the Cavaliers' rotation at this point in the season, so they might as well get some run with the Charge. Because the Cavs own and operate the Charge, it's all their own coaches and staff members. If Byron Scott wants Eyenga and Harangody to work on specific things, he can tell the Charge coaches to focus on those areas. It's a nice thing to be able to do.

The move is a little questionable in my mind because it weakens the Cavs bench in terms of sheer numbers. Anderson Varejao is already out with an injury and by sending down two players, that gives the Cavs just 12 active bodies. It's probably nothing to be concerned about, but if another player gets hurt I'm sure you'll see one or both of these guys called back up quickly.
