The Cavaliers have re-signed small forward Alonzo Gee, general manager Chris Grant said Monday. Gee, 25, averaged 10.6 points and 5.1 rebounds in 31 starts (and 63 total games) last season, his third in the NBA.
“From the start of free agency, we made it clear that re-signing Alonzo was important to us and we’re happy we’ve been able to do that,” Grant said in a written release. “Alonzo has worked very hard to make the most of the opportunities he has had thus far and it has been great to see his development and growth as a Cavalier. We’re excited he will be part of our team as our young group of players continues to grow together.”
Gee entered the off-season as a restricted free agent. His new contract is believed to be in the $9.75 to $10 million range over three years.
“I am excited to be back with the Cavs and be a part of what is being built here in Cleveland,” Gee said. “I wanted things to work out for me to be here and I’m really happy that they did. I’m really thankful that the Cavs gave me an opportunity and I can’t wait to get back to work with Coach (Byron) Scott and our coaches and my teammates.”
I’ll have more on Gee and the Cavs later this evening on FOXSportsOhio.com.
