Raptors Waived Guard Will Cherry Signs With Cavaliers

The Toronto Raptors invited guard Will Cherry to training camp and Head Coach Dwane Casey insisted they liked what they saw, but Cherry was competing with two three-year NBA veterans for the 15th roster spot and in the end, the Raptors went with the safe choice in defensive center Greg Stiemsma.  It didn’t take long, however, for Cherry to land back with the Cavaliers organization that had been following him closely since going undrafted just over a year ago.



Cherry played for the Cavaliers NBA D-League affiliate Canton Charge last season and the Cavaliers NBA Summer League squad, so they know what they are getting. Cherry is a prospect, but he tries hard and plays tough. This kid deserves a shot at his NBA dream.

Will Cherry was a very good college point guard at Montana and although injuries delayed his chance at making an NBA team, this potential Raptors rookie has done enough in preseason and in practices to get noticed.

“My senior year was a bust,” Cherry said. “When a broken foot hit me I was devastated and me being who I am, I played through it and I should have sat out – red shirt – and went from there. I had high expectations coming into my senior season, but it kind of snapped me back to reality. At any given moment, this game can be taken away from you. It made me grow up a lot.”

    I saw Jordan Hamilton got picked up on the waiver wire last week by the Jazz. So both players waived players have landed on their feet.(Jordan also made a little news by being suspended by the NBA for one game over a foul on Steve Adams.)
