Cavs Bolster Bench With Small Forward Richard Jefferson

For weeks now, the Cleveland Cavaliers have been looking for ways to bolster their bench at the wing position, especially behind LeBron James. After James played about 42+ minutes in the playoffs with no back up, General Manager made a concerted effort to get a small forward.

On Tuesday afternoon, the Cavs got their man when they signed Richard Jefferson, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

Sources who confirmed the situation also told Cleveland.com’s Chris Haynes that the deal with Jefferson was for the veteran’s minimum.

For his career, Jefferson has averaged 13.9 points, 4.3 rebounds and 2.2 assists. He’s still producing some very good numbers per-36 minutes as shown last year with 12.5 points and 5.3 rebounds.
