Cavs Links: Clark, Gee, Miles, Irving, Sims

Our round-up of Sam Amico’s latest rumors and notes this morning included a brief mention of one of the Cavs’ roster battles, between Matthew Dellavedova and Jermaine Taylor. There are a few more Cavs-related items of interest out there this morning though, which we’ll cover right here:

  • The Cavs have done a good job overhauling the roster in the last three years, but have yet to find a long-term solution for the position vacated by LeBron James in 2010, writes Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal. Lloyd takes a look at the contenders for the team’s minutes at small forward, all of whom will essentially be playing for contracts this season — Earl Clark and Alonzo Gee‘s deals are non-guaranteed beyond this season, while C.J. Miles will become a free agent next summer.
  • Kyrie Irving spoke to Steve Kyler of HoopsWorld about the team’s approach this fall, its expectations this season, and becoming a veteran leader on a young team.
  • While Dellavedova and Taylor compete for a roster spot in the backcourt, DeSagana Diop, Kenny Kadji, and Henry Sims look to be vying for a single froncourt opening. Bob Finnan of the News-Herald (Sulia link) details Sims’ quest to earn that spot, with the Georgetown product vowing, “I’ll do whatever is in my power to make sure I’m here.”
