Kendrick Perkins admitted his choice came down to the Cleveland Cavaliers and Los Angeles Clippers.
Perkins played AAU basketball with LeBron James and he chose the Cavaliers in part due to his relationship with him.
Perkins also liked the makeup of the roster and could be a good fit, according to Kyrie Irving.
"I think the biggest thing is everybody on this team is selfless and how close we are as a group is unbelievable," said Irving. "It's easy to bring another brother especially when he chooses us and he wants to come here, he wants to be a part of a run that can happen."
