Leon will cheer on Cavs for now

CLEVELAND  —  It’s not hard to keep thinking what might have been if Leon Powe [1] hadn’t torn the ACL in his left knee in that first round series against the Bulls in April.

Maybe it’s Powe who would have stayed and Glen Davis [2] might have moved on – to someplace like Cleveland.

Instead, Powe had reconstructive surgery and signed on as a free agent in August with the Cavaliers [3]. He is already working out lightly with his new team, including shootaround on Tuesday morning at Quicken Loans Arena [4], where the Cavs take on his old teammates, the Celtics [5].

“Almost identical,” Powe said of the two teams. “For the offense, they just call it something different and sometimes it’s the same thing, same motion. I should have no problem figuring that because that’s the same thing as Boston ran, defense, too.”

Powe said last week he is targeting a return just after the All-Star break in February, something he reiterated on Tuesday morning.

“I’m not in a rush to get back,” he said. “I wanted to get back tonight, actually. I told coach, give me 10 minutes and I’ll give you 10 [points] and eight [rebounds]. But he wasn’t going for it tonight so I’ve got to wait till February. There is no rush because this team is already good. I just want to come over here and flow right into things. Pick up energy, anything I can do to help them win.”
