Cleveland Cavaliers Interested in Robert Horry?

With Smith saying he wants to stay put, where does that leave the Cavs? With an intriguing option, according to a league source: former San Antonio Spur Robert Horry.

Horry, 38, a free agent, hasn’t played a game this season. He made his name coming off the bench for the Spurs the last five seasons. A 6-10 forward and center, Horry has 16 seasons in the NBA. His career average is 7 points per game.

In one respect, the Cavs’ interest in Horry makes sense. San Antonio is the former home of Cavs general manager Danny Ferry and coach Mike Brown. If he’s kept himself in shape, Horry could be a valuable insurance policy in the playoffs.
