The Cavaliers have added one more player to their training camp roster, having reached an agreement with Henry Sims, according to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon-Journal. The signing of Sims will increase Cleveland's preseason roster count to 18 players.
Sims, 23, made his NBA debut last season for New Orleans, appearing briefly in a pair of games for the then-Hornets. The 6'10" center spent most of the year with the Erie BayHawks, earning a spot in the D-League All-Star game, and finishing with averages of 16.4 and 8.7 RPG in 41 contests. We heard multiple times in August that the Cavs were considering extending a camp invite to Sims, who also drew some interest from the Knicks.
There's no guarantee Sims will earn a regular-season roster spot for the Cavs, but he should at least be given a shot. Even if we assume Andrew Bynum (partially guaranteed) and C.J. Miles (non-guaranteed) are locks for the roster, that could still leave two openings up for grabs, for the likes of Sims, Jermaine Taylor, Kenny Kadji, and Elliot Williams.
