Edy Tavares dominated inside in a win over the Raptors on Friday, scoring 10 points with 11 rebounds, one assist, one steal and three blocks in 27 minutes. Revenge game? With the Raptors 905 last year, Tavares won D-League Defensive Player of the Year for 2017, but he never made it up to the big club in Toronto. The 7'3" big man is at least starting to turn the corner to control all of his arms and legs, so maybe he can find a way to get minutes next year. His upside in blocks will always make him a fun name to track for owners in super deep leagues.

Edy Tavares scored 12 points with eight rebounds and one block in 18 minutes against the Bucks on Friday. He's still extremely raw, but it's going to take a really long time for him to get that 7'9" wingspan under control. Tavares did suffer a broken hand back in May, so it was a nice sign to see him back out there and play well. Perhaps he can make a push for some backup minutes, but he'll really have to show up in training camp.

Edy Tavares suffered a broken right hand in practice this week. The Cavs have had some bad luck with centers with Edy, Andrew Bogut and Chris Andersen going down this season. A broken hand usually results in 4-6 weeks off, but Tavares isn't the in the rotation. His upside is still something to watch with his 7'9" wingspan, but Tavares is still a major work in progress. He'll likely be a treat in Summer League.

Edy Tavares had a monster debut for the Cavaliers on Wednesday, racking up six points, 10 rebounds, one assist and six blocks in 24 minutes vs. Toronto. The Cavaliers rested their big three in the regular-season finale, but Tavares proved that he could give the Cavs some quality minutes off the bench if they call his name during the postseason. The 7'3" big man is an intriguing project for the Cavs to develop this summer and his shot-blocking ability puts him on the radar as a stash in dynasty formats. For what it's worth, Tavares has posted a triple-double in the D-League with 15 points, 11 rebounds and 12 blocks.

The Cavaliers are expected to sign free agent center Walter Tavares on Wednesday. Tavares was waived by the Hawks back in October of 2016, but the 7'3" big man has impressed in the D-League, averaging 10.6 points, 7.7 rebounds and 2.7 blocks. The Cavaliers will be signing him to a multi-year deal, and while he likely won't crack the rotation this season, maybe he gets some burn if the Cavs rest multiple players in the season finale on Wednesday. He's an intriguing project for the Cavs to develop this summer and he's worth monitoring in dynasty leagues.
