Thus far, the Cleveland Cavaliers’ offseason has drawn more attention for the names that the team didn’t land (Paul George and Chauncey Billups) than for the names that they did (Jose Calderon and Kyle Korver). However, Cleveland received some clarity from a key bench player this week.

Richard Jefferson, 37, announced he will return to the Cavs to play next season on an episode of his “Road Trippin'” podcast that was published Wednesday. “I will be starting my 17th season next year; I am not retiring,” Jefferson said on the podcast hosted on LeBron James’ “Uninterrupted” multimedia platform.
