This summer, for the first time in his 10-year career, guard Wally Szczerbiak will be a free agent. Now that he has found a home with the Cavs, he said he would like to stay with the team if everything works out. But don't expect him to bring it up. "Of course, I'd want to come back," Szczerbiak said. "But I don't worry about that stuff, I'm just playing as hard as I can because I'm a firm believer that contract stuff affects you in a negative way."
Szczerbiak has roots in Ohio from his days at Miami University and has adjusted to being a role player on the Cavs bench. He has proven useful when the team uses small lineups, which the front office will likely consider over the summer. "Once you find a place and a system you are comfortable with, you can work to get better," Szczerbiak said. "I am not a big proponent for change."
