Quote: Byron Scott Weighing Options at Center

From a coach’s standpoint, you can have four or five bad games, you’re almost giving me no choice but to look elsewhere. With the way he’s playing, do I stick with him or try to find another piece who can help us in this puzzle that we have? I haven’t made up my mind yet.

– Cavaliers head coach Byron Scott on power forward/center Samardo Samuels who has had an up-and-down season, most recently capped off with a lost passport and defensive lapses. Samuels is in danger of losing his spot in the rotation to a now-healthy Semih Erden.

    Just so long as this doesn’t mean more time for Ryan Hollins I’m inclined to lean towards the “give another guy a shot and see what he brings to the table” school of thinking.

    I’m very interested to see how Semih Erden looks when given significant minutes.  A European center seems like a great complement to Tristan Thompson’s aggressive above-the-rim playing style.
