Dion Waiters not interested in sixth man position for Cavs

The Cavaliers have added new pieces on th

e wing in LeBron James and Andrew Wiggins, two big-name players who are expected to have an immediate impact. James is an obvious franchise-changer, while Wiggins' effect on the Cavaliers will not be clear until the season actually starts. 

I mention those two players to get to Dion Waiters, who has manned the wing for the Cavaliers over the past two seasons. A former No. 4 pick, Waiters is a scoring guard who could be suited for a sixth man role. He's not interested in that, though.

It's clear that Cleveland will have a decision to make. 

Wiggins still needs work on the offensive end, but can defend at the shooting guard position from the outset. It could benefit him, however, to be brought along at a slower pace. 

Either way, if he isn't starting, Waiters won't be in the position he prefers. 

The irony of Waiters' statement is that he started in only 72 of 131 career games, including 24 starts over 70 games last season. He has maintained averages of 15.3 points, 3.0 assists and 2.6 rebounds over two NBA seasons.

UPDATE: Waiters deleted the above tweet, then tweeted he was kidding and that he would do what's best for the team:
