Cavs’ Karasev on board, but don’t expect instant impact

It’s not often a foreign basketball player younger than the age of 20 and drafted in the late teens makes an immediate contribution at the NBA level.

That’s pretty much what the Cavaliers are facing with Sergey Karasev, introduced to the media Tuesday.

Karasev turns 20 years old on Oct. 26. He most recently played in his native Russia. He can really shoot, and at 6-foot-8, is capable of playing either small forward or shooting guard.
