Cavaliers re-sign G Anthony Parker

The Cleveland Cavaliers have re-signed guard Anthony Parker.

Parker averaged 8.3 points in 72 games last season. The 36-year-old veteran is a candidate to be Cleveland’s starting shooting guard. Parker originally signed with the Cavaliers prior to the 2009 season.

Cleveland general manager Chris Grant also said Monday guard Baron Davis has left training camp to seek a second opinion on his stiff back that has kept him out of the early practice sessions. Davis could be waived by the team as part of the NBA’s new ”amnesty clause.” The deadline for teams to make that decision is Friday.

Grant also said forward Ormi Casspi injured his left knee at practice on Sunday and is expected to be sidelined for a couple of days.
