Leon Powe will remain a Cavalier

But we do know this — Leon Powe will be a part of it.

Yesterday the Cavs made the no-brainer move of picking up their option on Powe. When the Cavs signed him last summer they knew it was mostly for next year, he was just starting rehab on a serious knee injury. He is a very talented young player — he gave the Celtics an efficient 8 points and 5 rebounds a game off the bench two years ago. This season he returned to play 20 games, but was still never quite the same.

Next year may be different. Powe will make $915,852 next year. That’s not a lot to spend to see if the talented young forward can have a big bounce back year.
