Cleveland would’ve been glad to let Rip play there, but he didn’t want the minutes. Wouldn’t take buyout offer. Back to bench in Detroit.
I wouldn’t rush to believe this version of events. If the Cavaliers wanted Hamilton to play for them, they could have just made the trade. If they did, what options would Hamilton have but to play for them?
Richard Hamilton and LeBron James share the same agent, Leon Rose, and Wojnarowski has been critical of LeBron/Rose for quite some time. Don’t rule out that clouding his report.
