    Cavaliers claim ex-Warriors forward Alfonzo McKinnie off waivers

    Alfonzo McKinnie found a new basketball home.

    The Cavaliers claimed the former Warriors forward off waivers, the team announced Monday afternoon.

    McKinnie -- who officially was waived by Golden State on Saturday afternoon -- will remain on a non-guaranteed contract with Cleveland.

    The 27-year-old was vying to be the Dubs' starting small forward this season, but injuries in the frontcourt to Willie Cauley-Stein and Kevon Looney made him a roster casualty and Golden State opted to keep Marquese Chriss instead. 

    The Warriors play in Cleveland on Feb. 1 and host the Cavs on April 8.
