Former Cavaliers guard Daniel Gibson suggested this weekend that his NBA career may not be over.
Gibson said he was "flooded with calls" to sign 10-day contracts last month, but he hasn't worked out for any teams. "I just want to be 100 percent before I do any of that," Gibson said. "I'm not trying to just play. I want to play at a high level. That's what I miss." The 3-point specialist won't have fantasy appeal even if he does land a short-term contract this season.

The Nuggets may reach out to free agent Daniel Gibson.

Gibson entered the league in '06 and spent the entirety of his career with the Cavs, but they split ways this offseason. He has been a serviceable source of 3-pointers and points in past seasons, however he lost significant minutes last year to injury and Dion Waiters. He could again be fantasy-relevant if Gibson finds a team to sign with and works his way into the rotation.

Daniel Gibson's second-degree battery charges stem from an altercation at a New Orleans nightclub on July 8, when he allegedly broke a man's jaw after a verbal spat.

"Once all the facts of the incident come out, I expect to be fully vindicated," Gibson said. A few teams have shown interest in him as a free agent this summer, but pending criminal charges won't help his odds of earning a contract.

Daniel Gibson (elbow) intends to play in the Cavaliers' final three games.

Gibson still can't extend his elbow fully due to swelling, and it's doubtful how much he can contribute, but he said, "I don't want to finish the season on the IR." He's appeared in a mere 45 games this season while battling various injuries, but he still hopes to re-sign with the Cavs this summer.

Daniel Gibson (elbow) will not play in Tuesday's game against the Pacers.

Daniel Gibson (right elbow) will travel with the Cavaliers for Tuesday's game in Indiana, but he remains day-to-day.

Dion Waiters (knee) has also improved but he hasn't been cleared to practice, let alone play in a game. If Gibson isn't able to play vs. the Pacers, expect heavy minutes for Wayne Ellington and Shaun Livingston.

Gibson was one of a few Cavs to contract the flu recently, but tonight's inactivity was the result of an old-fashioned DNP-CD. We're taking him off the inactive list.
