Garland taking serious interest in improving his body for this season is great news for Cavs fans.
As a rookie, Garland averaged 12.3 points, 1.9 rebounds and 3.9 assists per game.
The No. 5 pick in the 2019 draft didn’t have a great rookie season, but it seems he is focused on making the adjustments to improve in his second season.
Garland reportedly was “far and away” the Cavs’ best player in their offseason bubble.
The Cavs can only hope that his work in the offseason can continue to carry over into the 2020-21 season when it begins on Dec. 22.
