They wanted to add someone who blends into the refurbished culture. Attitude matters. Character does as well. Competitive spirit is a prerequisite, one of head coach J.B. Bickerstaff’s core values.

Yes, the Cavaliers needed a small forward and they picked a small forward. He also is a defense-first small forward, something the Cavaliers have missed since the departure of LeBron James. This is not to compare Okoro with James, but it is to say he is a natural small forward with the athleticism needed to play the position in the NBA. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
