Wednesday's post-practice notes

By Jason Lloyd Published: October 6, 2010

* Byron Scott expects Jawad Williams, Leon Powe, Christian Eyenga and Samardo Samuels to see extended minutes tomorrow night against Washington. Powe and Eyenga didn't play at all against Charlotte, Williams played the entire fourth quarter and Samuels played about five minutes after other guys got into foul trouble.

* Samuels is an intriguing prospect. Undrafted rookie out of Louisville led the Cardinals in scoring and rebounding last season as a sophomore. He's a McDonald's All-American and typically those guys don't miss. Another year of college and he certainly would've been drafted, probably in the first round. But he wanted to come out now and felt he was ready. He likes the situation in Cleveland, but he's more of a forward than a center. And the Cavs are stocked at power forward with J.J. Hickson and Antawn Jamison. A feature on Samuels is coming in the Beacon within a week or so.

* Today's fun fact: Byron Scott makes the players shoot 50 free throws every day before leaving practice. Boobie Gibson was in a rush the other day and wanted to leave quickly. So he hit 50 in a row. Incredible. He also hit all 10 of his free throws Tuesday against the Bobcats.

* Today's bonus fun fact: Jawad Williams was goofing around after practice and hit a 3-pointer from a seated position. He said he has made a halfcourt shot while sitting down. It also won him a bet against a teammate.
