Cavs Interested in Kyrylo Fesenko?

The Plain Dealer reports on Cleveland’s intrigue with the big fella: “Training camp starts in just a week, but the Cavaliers are still looking at adding to their roster. According to multiple league sources, the team has been in contract talks with restricted free agent center Kyrylo Fesenko. The developing 7-1, 300-pound Ukrainian has played the last three seasons with the Utah Jazz, who would have matching rights to any offer Fesenko receives. Fesenko, who owns one of the biggest bodies in the league, played in 46 games last season for the Jazz and averaged 2.6 points and 1.8 rebounds. Utah has been hoping he would accept their one-year qualifying offer of $1 million and have reportedly grown frustrated with him in recent days.”

    ^ price and potential.

    Bigs are needed and if they can get him for under 2mil, he makes since. Not sure how much potential you can say he has after 3 years of sub-par play, but for that size and price worth the risk.

    For a grown a** 7-1 300 pound man to be avg. 2/1 is downright FOOLISH, at least he’s a better rebounder per minute than LA the Charmin man.

    ^ LOL @ “LA the Charmin”!

    LOL@LA Huey. I think need4sheed said he looks like the kid in 5th grade that wears shorts to school everyday, which is totally true. I think he’s in a tough spot cuz he’ll make more in Europe unless he is put on a team w less talent in front of him than Booz/Memo/Milsap even AK47 playing the 4 at times. I won’t be surprised if Euroleague teams pick him up in a year or two.

    I watched him play during the playoffs. He’s a serviceable tough big man. Why not if he doesnt cost much.

  • Dutch hoopfan

    Legit defensive center

    Co-sign Tarzan. He hasn’t gotten enough burn but he’ll be a useful big. No wonder the Rockets are looking at him too.
