Kendrick Perkins to join Cavaliers’ G-League team
It’s not often that you see an NBA veteran head to the developmental league, but that’s what’s happening in the case of Kendrick Perkins.
Perkins was cut by the Cleveland Cavaliers at the end of training camp. However, he is sticking with the franchise and has agreed to a deal with the Canton Charge of the G-League, which is the Cavs’ affiliate, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
The 32-year-old center has not played in the NBA since the 2015-2016 season when he appeared in 37 games with the Pelicans. The year before that he played in 17 games with the Cavaliers.
Cavs head coach Ty Lue was offering Perkins a job as a coach with the team if he wanted to go down that career path.
