http://www.ohio.com/mld/ohio/sports/14136386.htmIn hindsight, it looks like the Cavs should have signed free-agent point guard Steve Blake last summer. The 26-year-old Blake is a true point guard having a breakout season, averaging 8.8 points, shooting 42 percent on 3-pointers and standing second in the NBA in assist-to-turnover ratio. He has been so good, he has unseated Portland Trail Blazers star-in-waiting Sebastian Telfair as the starter. Blake visited the Cavs last summer and was ready to sign an offer sheet, but one never was presented. He ended up signing with the Blazers just before the start of training camp. His old team, the Wizards, weren't high enough on him to match the Blazers offer, and the Cavs wanted a more experienced player, opting for Damon Jones.
Blake also played well in college: winning teh NCAA tournament with a talented Maryland roster
