While Dion Waiters has been studying the game of Dwyane Wade to better suit himself to play alongside LeBron James, he already has a familiarity with Kevin Love, the newest member of the Cleveland Cavaliers.
For over a month it was suspected that Love would be traded to the Cavaliers and on Tuesday the franchise officially introduced their All-Star power forward to the world. Kevin Love has yet to play with LeBron James outside of Team USA activity, though he will have some chemistry with previously mentioned Cleveland Cavaliers teammate Dion Waiters as the two workout together when in California says Philly.com.
Whenever he’s in Los Angeles, Waiters also trains regularly with Kevin Love, who joined him and James with the Cavaliers as the primary piece of the three-team trade that sent Andrew Wiggins and Young to the Timberwolves.
Kevin Love is of course a native Californian and spends a good amount of his offseason training there. Dion Waiters is not, however, he like many other NBA talents decide to hit the sunny skies of the West Coast during their downtime.
Granted, it’s not as if Love and Waiters have been practicing sets out of the Cleveland Cavaliers playbook by any stretch, though the two have spent some time together and that should help them form a quicker bond and chemistry when the season tips.
Many expect the Cleveland Cavaliers to have a minor stumble out of the gate as a complete roster overhaul can sometimes take a few weeks to gel, though the relationship between Waiters and Love should make the transition a bit easier.
