RICHFIELD, Ohio — Brad Daugherty's weight is about the same; it's just shifted around a bit for the Cleveland Cavalier center.
Daugherty spent his summer vacation in North Carolina working with weights, and the results are noticeable. While his backside remains large, the Cavaliers' second-year, 7-foot center is now packing a solid 260 pounds.
"Last year I could hold my position in my lower body, but guys would lean on my upper body and start to push me out," Daugherty said. "I added two or three inches to my chest. I think it will help me post up."
"He put in some work," said Bryan Marshall, the Cavs' strength and conditioning instructor. "He's still a young guy. He has a big body, and he's going to get tighter.
