After 4 months of negotiations, the Cavs finally managed to reach an agreement to re-sign J.R. Smith.
While the team will rejoice the retention of a key part of their 2016 Championship winning team, they’ll have to lose some depth to keep him around. The first player to go is veteran point guard Toney Douglas.
Toney was one of several players at the Cavs training camp fighting for a spot on the roster. Others include Jordan McRae, DeAndre Liggins, John Holland, Jonathan Holmes and Cory Jefferson.
In five preseason appearances for the Cavaliers, Douglas averaged 2.2 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 1.2 assists in 11 minutes per game.
