Cleveland Cavaliers News: Cavs to sign guard A.J. Price

The Cavs will eventually sign all of the point guards

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Cavs never ending quest for reserve ball handling continues. A.J. Price will be a Cleveland Cavalier, according to Terry Pluto of

5. The Cavs will bring veteran point guard A.J. Price to training camp. He played in only 28 games for Minnesota last season, and saw little action. The 6-foot-2 Price has played in 235 NBA games, averaging 5.9 points and shooting .381 from the field for his career.

Price isn't a name that excites, and given that he is most likely on a non-guaranteed deal he faces long odds to make the team, or get minutes after that. Like the undrafted Chris Crawford, Price has a bigger frame than average for a point guard. He is a solid handler and defender, but a really poor shooter, sporting 38% shooting from the field and 32% from deep for his career.

The Cavs will probably play a lot of "no point guard" lineups with Dion Waiters or LeBron James initiating  offense, leaving five or so minutes a night available for somebody. Maybe that's Price.
