I've been looking forward to some news from training camp. Here's an encouraging tidbit from Yardbarker (http://network.yardbarker.com/nba/article_external/cavs_report_early_camp_breakdown/11884327):
4. Jeremy Pargo appears to be a keeper.

Scott has offered nothing but praise for the backup point guard, acquired in an offseason trade (with a second-round pick, for D.J. Kennedy).

Pargo is a bit of a good-natured prankster and just generally fun to be around. But his coach is a fan because of the way Pargo pushes the ball in practice.

“The thing I love about him the most is the way he talks out there on the floor,” Scott said. “He brings a different energy that we haven’t had the last few years. He brings a positive energy.”

5. The Cavs have some tough roster decisions to make.

If Pargo makes the team, it’s hard to envision the Cavs keeping Donald Sloan, Irving’s backup at the end of last season. Either way, the Cavs have to cut five players from camp.

With Leuer and Pargo seemingly shoe-ins, potential candidates to be released now include camp invitees Justin Holiday and Kevin Anderson, undrafted free agents Kevin Jones and Michael Eric, trade-day acquisition Kelenna Azubuike, returning forward Luke Harangody and Sloan.

Then again, Scott has already said it’s possible the Cavs keep both Pargo and Sloan, and Harangody just accepted the team’s qualifying offer over the summer. So keep in mind, all the names mentioned are pure speculation. And a few of them will make it.

Per media reports today, Pargo and Sloan both made the Cavs roster.

Good news for Pargo. Don't know why he had such a disappointing preseason. I hope things pick up for him.
