This is encouraging news for Cleveland and its fans, as Garland had a slightly disappointing rookie season.
Despite averaging 12.3 points and 3.9 assists per game, Garland struggled in many of the advanced metrics that determine a player’s value.
The Cavs certainly need to see Garland take strides in his second season if they want him to be a part of their plans going forward.
The fact that he impressed in the Cavs’ mini bubble is a good start.
