Cavaliers Pick Up Team Option On Kendrick Perkins

Kendrick Perkins, who was signed on the final day of the regular season but did not play a single minute in the 2018 postseason, will have his contract option for 2018-19 picked up by the Cavaliers, multiple league sources told ESPN.

As much as the Cavs appreciate Perkins as a locker room presence, the decision is simply a salary-cap ploy in order to try to aggregate the 33-year-old center’s $2.5 million salary along with an existing contract in order to pursue a trade around the league.

Team sources told ESPN that the Cavs “continue to explore all options to improve” heading into LeBron James’ decision about his future with the franchise.
