Cavaliers’ Lue scouts McCants

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

According to reports, Cleveland Cavaliers head coach Tyronn Lue was at the Big 3 Championship to scout a potential new addition to his team. He was there to look at Rashad McCants, a Trilogy guard.

While the team continues to figure out how to make the Isaiah Thomas and Kyrie Irving blockbuster work, Lue was looking to add at least a camp body.

“Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue was in attendance, reportedly to scout Trilogy’s Rashad McCants, who was the first overall pick of the inaugural BIG3 draft,” the league said. “If that was the case, Lue probably liked what he saw. McCants led Trilogy with 22 points and scored the last 5 points to close out the game.”

McCants, 32, hit the game-winner to help Trilogy win the BIG3 Championship. If he does sign with the Cavaliers, it’ll be the first-time a player for Ice Cube’s league has signed with an NBA franchise.

If he does sign, it would not be the first-time that he has signed with an NBA team. He last played in the NBA in 2009 with the Sacramento Kings.

He was previously the Minnesota Timberwolves first-round pick (14th overall) in the 2005 NBA Draft.

From 2012 through 2015, he played for eight different teams overseas. He also had a stint with the Texas Legends in 2013, who he previously played for in 2010-11.
