Author: Cameron Fields
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Ante Zizic was supposed to continue building his status with the Cavaliers during the 2019-20 season, especially considering he posted career numbers the season before.
In 2018-19, Zizic played in a career-high 59 games and scored a career-high 7.8 points per game. He also grabbed a career-best 5.4 rebounds a game and shot 55.3% from the field on a career-high 5.6 field goal attempts a game.
