The Cavaliers have finalized their full 20-man roster for training camp, although they’re willing to make room for one more.
Veteran point guard A.J. Price was signed to a one-year deal on Monday, capping the Cavs’ training camp roster while they wait on a decision from Ray Allen.
Neither Allen nor his representatives have given any indication whether or not he’ll play this season, but the Cavs privately are hopeful he’ll elect to play again and choose Cleveland. A final decision from Allen, however, may not come until after training camp begins next week.
“I don’t think we’d ever give up on [Allen],” Cavs General Manager David Griffin said Monday from the team’s golf outing at Firestone Country Club. “Until he signs, that’s going to be a target for everybody.”

Free-agent guard Jameer Nelson has agreed to a one-year deal with the New Orleans Pelicans, league sources told The Vertical.
Nelson entered free agency Wednesday, when the Denver Nuggets waived him to create roster space to sign Richard Jefferson and allow second-year guard Jamal Murray to assume the starting point-guard role.

Bobby Portis Apologizes to Bulls for Mirotic Fight
Bobby Portis has apologized to his Bulls teammates for getting into a fight that left Nikola Mirotic with facial fractures and a concussion. “He didn’t address us today, but he did address the team before so that was taken care of,” Bulls swingman Justin Holiday said after Friday’s practice.
Bulls coach Fred Hoiberg acknowledged that Portis’ apology took place during a team meeting but did not want to go into specific details about his message. “I’ll keep that between the team,” Hoiberg said, “as far as exactly what was said in that meeting.”
