Cavs Cavaliers Looking At Joey Graham

Quote:
The Cavaliers have interest in small forward Joey Graham, sources told the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

The Cavs have been looking for a "stretch-four," but Graham could become their main target if they can't find a power forward that they like.

Graham, 27, has spent his entire NBA career with the Raptors.

Via Cleveland Plain Dealer
Can we sign and trade for anyone???????

Good for Joey, always thought his best position was as a PF. Slightly undersized in height but more than makes up for it in brute strength.

Actually would like joey to be our 3rd PF on this team. Would be a very solid roll for him.

Definately.

Played PF all through college and was more than solid at it.

Remember him guarding Howard this past season, made it very, very hard on him.

Joey is an undersized PF through and through, he could never grasp the SF spot in the NBA.

Joey-6'7" 240lbs

Bass-6'8" 240lbs
Millsap-6'8" 245lbs
Amir Johnson-6'8" 235lbs
Maxiell-6'7" 255lbs

Not that unreasonable at all.

^^It was, all his strength was magnified when he could actually use it down low. Add to the fact that he's quicker than the average PF, he was boarding and bumping all the regulars down there like it was nothing.

Snooch is on the money.

Joey is like a more athletic Corliss Williamson.

I really have been thinking that he is a guy the Raps really should try to get back, especially with the reports that they have no interest in Pops.

I just assumed that they would resign him on the cheap, never really liked him that much. He played with heart but whoopde doo.

Bring back Joey as our 3rd PF.

Im on the wagon.

I'd love to give them Joey Graham and Marcus Banks...

I just wonder what we would get in return. I'd be fine with nothing in return but cash though.

I thought at most he's 230. But even if, he just has an average wingspan. He does have some tough D but I think the SF spot would be more suitable... He's just a bench player anyways.

Joey's a brick shit house. He's been most effective as a Rap at the 4 matched up against bigger players and he brings much more to the table than meets the eye.

I liked Joey but he never seemed to fit in with raptors.
He is a solid defender at times and his offensive game got
better under Triano. Good luck in Clevland some players
just need a change to kick start their career.
