Cavaliers' JaCorey Williams: Signs deal with Cavaliers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Williams agreed to a contract with the Cavaliers on Monday, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports.

With the signing of Williams, the Cavaliers have now filled their training camp roster. Cleveland intends to have Williams play with their G-League affiliate, the Canton Charge. Williams could potentially see some time with the Cavaliers this season, as they still have one more two-way contract they could offer.

Cavaliers' Derrick Rose: To begin season as starting point guard
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rose will begin the season as the Cavaliers' starting point guard, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports.

While the job will eventually belong to Isaiah Thomas, the former Celtic won't be ready until late-December, at the earliest, meaning Rose could serve as the starter for nearly half of the regular season. Of course, Rose is nowhere near the player he once was, but he should benefit from playing alongside LeBron James and a talented Cavaliers roster, despite the fact that he's coming off of the worst three-point shooting season of his career. Rose shot less than 22 percent from three in 2016-17, though he did convert 47.1 percent of his field goal attempts, overall. Even with the increased role to begin the year, Rose remains a fringe fantasy option, as James will likely end up as the Cavs' primary playmaker and distributor whenever he's on the floor.

Cavaliers' Isaiah Thomas: Could be back before January
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thomas (hip) could return to action sometime in December, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports.

Much has been made of Thomas' hip injury since it nearly derailed his trade to the Cavs, but after three weeks of rehabbing in Cleveland, the team's medical staff is apparently optimistic about the point guard's progress. The Cavs indicated Monday that Thomas, who has started on-court activities could be back on the floor before the end of the calendar year, and if that's the case, it would mean he'd miss somewhere around 30-35 games. With Thomas presumably out for roughly the first two months of the season, fellow new addition Derrick Rose figures to see increased minutes, with LeBron James likely spending considerable time operating as the Cavs' de facto point guard.

Cavaliers' Kendrick Perkins: Joins Cavaliers for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Perkins will sign a training camp deal with the Cavaliers, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports.

The 12-year veteran's last NBA action came during the 2015-16 season with the Pelicans, where he averaged a meager 2.5 points and 3.5 rebounds across 14.6 minutes. He'll join the Cavaliers in an attempt to make a comeback, but is unlikely to make the final roster. That said, even if he does make the team, Perkins will be nothing more than a mentor to the younger players on the roster and wouldn't be a viable fantasy option.
