He said, "Iíve watched guys like Wade and different players that have to sacrifice. Iíd be lying to myself and everybody here if I was telling you I didn't have to sacrifice. Ö Iím willing to do whatever it takes for this team to win because at the end of the day, thatís what we want, is to win."
Waiters is not sure if he will start or come off the bench for Cleveland, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. He also noted, "I know the ball isnít going to be in my hands that much, probably. So you have to find a way to impact the game - if itís not just scoring, probably on the defensive end also."
Thompson will see minutes at center and may even start at the five, the Akron Beacon Journal reports. Although undersized, the team believes that Thompson could handle opposing centers on the defensive end.
