Report: Cavaliers to sign Kendrick Perkins for last game, playoffs


Itís good to have friends in high placesÖ or just ones named LeBron.

Kendrick Perkins is back. The once useful big man has not played in a regular season game for just shy of two years (April 13, 2016) but the Cavaliers are once again bringing him back for the playoffs, reports Adrian Wojnarowski and Dave McMenamin of ESPN. Last-minute signings are a Cavaliersí thing.

Cleveland will sign Perkins on Wednesday, the final day of the regular season, just as it did in 2016 when guard Dahntay Jones was added, and in 2017 when both Jones and center Edy Tavares were added for the Cavsí playoff run.

This is more about veteran leadership in the locker room for a now younger Cavaliers team ó Larry Nance Jr. and Jordan Clarkson have never been to the playoffs, Rodney Hood just once ó than it is about on-court production. There were undoubtedly other guys out there who could give them more on the court, but the Cavs know and trust what Perkins brings.

Plus, if the Cavaliers need to scowl at someone during the playoffs, they just picked up one of the best.

Punk.

I'll never forget him doing the choke gesture in his stupid green striped shirt at game 7.

Iím still in awe that the Rockets picked Perkins over Harden and Jeff Green. Heís Kwame Brown with the luck of having played on a team with four all stars.
