On Sunday, Dion Waiters was at Philadelphia University as a celebrity judge for the third annual Mary Kline Classic dunk contest. Waiters took a few minutes to field questions from reporters after the contest, and the recent USA Basketball minicamp invitee was confident about the Cavaliers’ immediate future.
“We don’t want to settle for no 7- or 8-seed,” Waiters said. “We could probably be a 6-seed or something like that. We just got to work hard and believe in each other and have each other’s backs and just play.”
When asked what he thinks the Cavs will do with the No. 1 pick, Waiters said, “I don’t know; I’m not sure. I haven’t talked to anybody on the team about it. But we definitely want somebody who’s a winner and is going to come in and help us win.”—Jake Fischer / @JakeLFischer
