Report: Cavs looking to Trade Dion Waiters

Stop playing “buddy ball”

According to Chris Broussard, sources are indicating that Cavs are trying to find a trade partner for Dion Waiters.  It seems like Waiters is on board with the idea.  Can’t say I blame him.

“Irving called the meeting after the game and every player spoke. When Waiters was given the floor, he criticized Thompson and Irving, accusing them of playing “buddy ball” and often refusing to pass to him. Thompson took umbrage with Waiters’ words and went back at him verbally. The two confronted each other but teammates intervened before it could escalate into a fight

However, the two guards are not close. Waiters believes the Cavaliers have a double standard when it comes to Irving, sources said. He feels that while Irving is allowed to get away with loafing defensively, making turnovers and taking bad shots, he is taken out of the game for such things. Waiters has shared his views with Brown and Grant.”
