Nance was acquired last season just before the trade deadline and played a vital part in helping the Cavs advance through the playoffs. He has also expressed a desire multiple times to stay in the city he grew up in.
Last year for the Cavs, the 6-foot-9 center averaged 8.9 points, 7.0 rebounds, and .8 blocks per game.
The big man is questionable to play in the team’s season-opener against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night, as he is currently dealing with a sprained ankle for the first time in his three-year career.
