The Cavs are making a playoff push, and they’ve filled out their roster with a 15th guy.
Is Scotty Hopson any good? Decide for yourself after watching him play, but here is my take after watching him this season.
On Monday, it was announced that Cleveland had signed the ex-Anadolu Efes wingman to a 2-year, $3.8 million contract, with a team option for next year. There has been talk that the primary focus of the deal was the $2.5 million team option for next season that can be used as a valuable addition to draft day trades, but let’s not forget there is still a basketball player involved in this deal.
Hopson came to Anadolu Efes after a standout year in Hapoel Eilat, who our team, Maccabi Rishon Lezion, played in the quarterfinals of the Israeli League playoffs. Hopson arrived in Israel after a sub-par season in a very physical Greek League in which it is traditionally tough to succeed as a rookie.
