Kenny Kadji Impresses Cavs’ Mike Brown
Rookie power forward Kenny Kadji got more than 50 texts after scoring 15 points in his NBA debut on Tuesday night as the Cavs beat the Milwaukee Bucks, 99-87, in the preseason opener at The Q.
“He’s long, he’s athletic, he did some good things last night,” (Cavs coach Mike) Brown said after Wednesday’s practice at Cleveland Clinic Courts. “He did some good things in the scrimmage. With his length, his athleticism, his quickness and agility, if he continues to try to play hard, he can impact the game when he’s out there.”
The Cavs are in the market for another big, especially with the uncertain status of Andrew Bynum, who has yet to be cleared for five-on-five basketball. Kadji, who certainly looked more viable on Tuesday than veteran DeSagana Diop, would like to stake his claim and figures his energy can only help him.
