Newest Cavs excited to be wearing wine and gold, ready to make Cleveland proud

CLEVELAND - The newest Cavaliers have arrived, and they're excited to hit the hardwood Sunday night in their first game as Clevelanders.

"You know, watching the game last night, kind of got a lot of butterflies in my stomach, I was up all night," George Hill, who came from the Sacramento Kings, said. "Couldn't sleep because I'm just excited. You know I'm excited to be a part of this heritage, this tradition. I'm excited to be with these new teammates and things like that. I see how many overshots a lot of them get. I'm just looking for my shot, waiting for my opportunity."

Larry Nance Jr., who came from the Los Angeles Lakers, is excited to be back where he grew up and playing "for the team I've been rooting for my whole life."

Coming over from the Utah Jazz, Rodney Hood said he's here to play ball, and the most important thing to him is to bring energy to the court and the team.

Jordan Clarkson, who also came from the Lakers, is ready to be apart of the Cavs and do whatever he needs to do for the team.
