Right before the NBA playoffs, the Cleveland Cavaliers have signed two new players.
Cavaliers General Manager, David Griffin announced on Wednesday the team have signed guard Dahntay Jones and center Edy Tavares.
Jones last played for the Cavaliers in 2015 and 2016 and appeared in one regular season game and 15 playoff games during the Cavaliers title run. During his career, so far, he holds averages of 5.4 points and 1.7 rebounds in 15.7 minutes over 623 contests with Memphis, Sacramento, Denver, Indiana, Dallas, Atlanta, L.A. Clippers and Cleveland.
Tavares has been playing for Raptors most of this season and has averaged 10.6 points, 7.7 rebounds and was a 2017 D-League All-Star selection. Tavares will give the Cavs some extra size up front as starting forward Tristan Thompson has been sidelined for the last four games with a sprained right thumb.
The Cavs are currently in second place in the Eastern Conference entering today’s season finale against Toronto.
