LeBron James: Sixth-man role 'good' for Dion Waiters


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/8/2014) Cavaliers small forward LeBron James liked what he saw out of shooting guard Dion Waiters Friday as Waiters served as the sixth man, and James believes the role is a fit for the guard, the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports.

"Dion comes off the bench and brings us that scoring mentality but more than that, he brings us another defender off the bench, which we need. Someone that's tough, someone that can guard one through three. It's a new role, but it's a good role for him."

Waiters has indicated that he wants to remain in the starting lineup, but he's starting to embrace the new role for the betterment of the Cavaliers.

"I thought he had a terrific game today, and I told him so in the locker room," Blatt said.

The Cavaliers are off this weekend before facing the Pelicans Monday.
