Graham Takes Off For Cleveland

Joey Graham is going to Cleveland.

Denver Nuggets small forward Joey Graham will follow assistant coach Jamahl Mosley to Cleveland. Graham signed a two-year contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers and could be the Cavaliers replacement of LeBron James.

Graham averaged 4.2 points and 2 rebounds for the Nuggets in 63 games. Graham saved his best for last after scoring 21 points in the Game 6 versus the Utah Jazz.

Some Nuggets fans felt Graham deserved more minutes with Denver, but he was too inconsistent to deserve more times on the floor and wasn’t a reliable enough scorer to get consistent time. One of Graham’s biggest weaknesses is he struggles driving left and if a smart defender takes away his strong hand Graham is almost completely useless. He also struggles against quicker players, but is a good fit against smaller power forwards like Antawin Jamison. While Graham definitely won’t make Cavs fans forget about James, fans should enjoy his effort and athleticism on most nights.
