Mike Brown Says Dion Waiters Will Play Strictly At SG
Dion Waiters had some bright moments as a rookie with the Cavaliers, but to often found himself in an undefined role while trying to learn the game.
Things will be much simpler for Waiters in Cleveland in his second season. According to The Akron Beacon Journal, Brown sees Waiters simply as a shooting guard.
“I’m viewing him strictly as a 2-guard,” Brown said.
Brown would like Waiters to learn the nuances of being a guard, whether he’s shooting or not.
“I even told Dion, ‘You could go 0 for 20 for all I care. Shoot the ball every time you touch it. Don’t make a shot. I’m not looking at that right now because we’ll correct that part,’” Brown said. “I just want to see the little things that add up to championship level basketball. Each game I thought he’s gotten a little bit better in those areas.”
