- Stephen Curry is extremely high on Darius Garland, veteran sportswriter Jackie MacMullan said while appearing on “The Bill Simmons Podcast.” “I talked to Steph Curry a couple weeks ago, and I was asking him about young players he might have reached out to and guess who he said?” MacMullan remarked. “Darius Garland, Darius Garland, he loves Darius Garland a lot, a lot, a lot. He thinks that kid is gonna be a flat-out star.” (h/t Cavaliers Nation) The fifth overall pick of the 2019 NBA Draft saw a significant increase in his scoring, assist and shooting percent averages last season. Getting a vote of confidence from one of the best point guards of all time should boost his confidence heading into next season.
The Cavs have made a couple of changes to their coaching staff, Fedor passes along. Dan Geriot will now become the head coach of the G League affiliate Canton Charge, as Geriot previously served as an assistant coach on J.B. Bickerstaff’s bench. Meanwhile, recent Canton head coach Nate Reinking will join the Cavs as an assistant.
