Less than a week away from the beginning of the 2018 NBA Playoffs and the Cleveland Cavaliers are still making moves. ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Cavs will fill their final roster spot with 33-year-old journeyman Kendrick Perkins, who most recently played for the G-League’s Canton Charge.
