Sources: Cavs shopping Dion Waiters. They've spoken w/Chi, NYK & Philly. No deal imminent. Waiters is open to being traded.

 

Chris Broussard ‏@Chris_Broussard32s

Sources: Cavs' targets 4 Waiters - Shumpert (NYK), Deng (Chi), Evan Turner (Philly)

 

Rumors of Waiters/Kyrie fight R false. Instead Waiters & Tristan Thompson had intense argument but were separated b4 it became a fight

 

Since he got it from "multiple sources", it gotta be true. 

 

Edit:lol Sources all day.

It's really funny how people just try to reach out for every agent available. 

I doubt half the people saying they'd want him hasn't even seen him play, let alone this year.

This year he's averaging 12 points on 35% shooting from the field and 28% from three.

There's a reason they're shopping him.

 

 

pass.

Waiters is nothing special at all. When he went as high as he did in the draft I was baffled. I was pulling for the guy to succeed because he is from my part of town in south philly, and a girl that went to my high school actually dated him. Anyway he is just a shooter and isnt really a good one. He is a volume shooter in my opinion and I don't want any of that. Pass.

Waiters is literally Garbage... dude has shown no promise and is yet to prove that he was atleast a decent pick but so far he's been a big bust.

 

I'd personally rather keep Xavier than trade him for Waiters.  However, Deng for Waiters does make a bit of sense for Chicago

Averaging double digit points and shooting close to 40% from three this season isn't garbage by any means. 

 

His field goal % is pretty bad but the kid is 21 and will continue to grow.  People are quick to label a player a bust just because of where they were taken in the draft.  It's not the fault of the player how weak a specific draft class is. 

 

I'm not a Waiters fan by any means, but the talk of him being a bust early is silly.  For what was said about him going into the draft by scouts is pretty much we are seeing now.  He's not going to be a star by any means in the NBA, but he will be a solid role player in his career.

I think he is fairly decent for a player with only 2 full years of experience, nearly 15 ppg at 40 percent. Plus sometimes young players tend to stall with building teams, unless they are the franchise player like Irving.

I dont think waiters is a bust. Hes just in the wrong team. Cavs system is garbage. K I had a lot of promise when drafted and now hes just regressing in that system.

Just saying

Somewhat agree, similar to Wall as well. Some night look like worthy number one overall picks, other nights you're wondering what happened. I don't mean just a bad game, but just play style.
