INDEPENDENCE: DeSagana Diop, whom the Cavaliers selected eighth overall in 2001, is on the team's official training camp roster this month.
Diop was a draft bust who started just five games in four years with the Cavs, but he has managed to stick around the NBA for 12 seasons. He spent the last five seasons with the Charlotte Bobcats and averaged 0.7 points and 2.3 rebounds in 22 games (one start).
The Cavs have open spots at the end of the roster and Diop would seem to have a good chance at making this team. WIth health concerns surrounding both Anderson Varejao and Andrew Bynum, the Cavs could use another big at the end of the bench.
At 7-feet and 300 pounds, DIop certainly qualifies.
