Sargent: Ryan Hollins picks up player option

This comes from Waiting For Next Year’s Scott Sargent:

Source tells WFNY that Ryan Hollins has picked up his $2.5mm player option and will be with the #Cavs next season.

The 7-foot Hollins appeared in 70 games for the Cavaliers last season, and averaged 5.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 2.8 fouls  in 17 minutes per game. The 26-year old Hollins is still very raw at both ends of the floor, but he’s still very tall and very athletic, and the Cavaliers don’t have a lot of other options at the center position.

There probably wouldn’t have been much demand for Hollins’ services on the open market, and the Cavaliers will likely keep Hollins in their rotation, so Hollins picking up his option was likely a mutually beneficial decision for him and his team.

    I think at 26 we can finally stop calling him “raw” and just start calling him bad. Not too many centers go through a giant leap of progression from their 5th year to their 6th.
