|"We Belong Together"...yeah it's it's pretty sad I just quoted a Gavin Degraw song.|
Paul Harris traveled to Cleveland for a workout, where the Cavaliers are planning on assembling their NBA Summer League squad.
But he already had an offer from Minnesota for a spot on their summer team.
That and the minor detail that his Niagara Falls and Syracuse buddy Jonny Flynn is on the T'Wolves. Paul Harris and Jonny Flynn, Niagara Falls twin sons together in the Twin Cities.
I heard first from Dave McMenamin (shout out to a fellow SU alum) that Harris is going to play on Minnesota's summer league, then spoke to Harris over the phone.
"I feel like it's a great fit for me going to Minnesota," Harris said. "They've got other young guys fighting for spots just like me so I'm going in hoping to fight to make the roster, and I think it'll be great playing with Jonny Flynn."
Harris will fly straight to Las Vegas on July 9. The NBA Summer League kicks off July 10 but the Timberwolves first game is July 12 vs. Houston.
Before he hung up, Paul said, "I'll see you in Vegas!" and asked me if I wanted to drive with his cousin Dexter. One road trip with Dexter was enough after we drove to Miami and back for the NCAAs haha.
I'll leave you with "Reunited" by Peaches and Herb, where the lyrics kind of make sense in a sick, twisted way after Paul really almost spurned Jonny by going to Cleveland. You knew they couldn't be apart for long.
"I was a fool to ever leave your side
Me minus you is such a lonely ride
The breakup we had has made me lonesome and sad"
Reunited and it feels so good."
