Cavs Sign Perkins

Cleveland Cavaliers Sign Kendrick Perkins for the Remainder of the Season

With an empty roster spot and the NBA playoffs approaching, the Cleveland Cavaliers decided to make one final move.

On Tuesday, the team announced they were signing veteran big man Kendrick Perkins.

The former NBA champion has not appeared in an NBA game since the 2015-16 season, playing part of the season in the G League with the Canton Charge. Perkins originally returned to the Cavs over the summer, but was cut prior to the season.

With the Playoffs quickly approaching, the move seems eerily similar to the Dahntay Jones signing in each of the last two season. Both Jones and Perkins being proven veterans who could provide leadership off the bench, and the toughness needed to survive the grind of the postseason.

Earlier in the season, Cavaliers’ head coach Tyronn Lue lauded over how Perkins has worked to transform his body in order to get more into game shape. Through 13-regular seasons, Perkins has averaged 5.4-points and 5.8-rebounds per game.
