Brown: Irving, Waiters are Still Learning

It took Cavaliers coach Mike Brown nine games before he pulled the plug on the combination, and moved Waiters to the bench.

Brown said Waiters and Irving aren’t just learning how to play together, they are learning how to play. Waiters is in his second year in the NBA, Irving in his third.

“They’ve had some moments where they’ve played very well together on the floor,” Brown said. “They are two young guys trying to figure out how to play the right way themselves, no matter who else is out on the floor. They are getting better learning how to play with each other.”

Being moved to the bench has fueled rumors the Cavs might entertain offers to deal Waiters at the Feb. 20 trade deadline. They might live to regret that move, especially if Waiters continues to have games like he did on Sunday against Memphis.
