Kendrick Perkins Reportedly Invited to Cavaliers Training Camp

Kendrick Perkins Reportedly Invited to Cavaliers Training Camp”

Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder, Jeff Green and Ante Zizic (sort of) won't be the only former Boston Celtics at the Cleveland Cavaliers training camp next week.

Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reported the news, noting Perkins was with the Cavs at LeBron James' so-called team minicamp in California.

Perkins, 6-foot-11, last played for the New Orleans Pelicans during their 2015-16 campaign, where he averaged 2.5 points and 3.5 rebounds in 37 appearances. He's interested in an National Basketball Association comeback and is apparently in great shape, judging by the team photo shared by multiple Cavs on their various social media platforms.

Perkins, 32, is reportedly in great shape as he told the Boston Globe earlier this summer: "The body feels good, man, I'm just sitting here waiting on an opportunity". "I'm just going to do what I can. I'm just trying to stay with it". It's 30 teams out there and I'm just looking for one opportunity.

Perkins previously played for the Cavs during the 2014-15 season. The team already has 15 players on guaranteed contracts, the league limit, and a luxury-tax situation that would multiply the cost of adding further salary.

The Cavs have now filled 19 of 20 spots for camp invitees.

That changed on Thursday, when several players posted the first (unofficial) team photo of the 2017-18 Cleveland Cavaliers.
