Cavs Sign Ben Uzoh To 10-Day Contract

The Cavaliers have signed Ben Uzoh to a 10-day contract, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer (via Twitter). The team confirmed the signing.

Uzoh played 42 games last season for the Nets as an undrafted free agent, recording 3.8 points and 14.8 PER in just over 10 minutes per game. The 23-year-old had been playing for the Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the D-League this year, and was named the league's Performer of the Week from January 16-22.

Having waived Mychel Thompson on Monday, the Cavs won't need to make a move to clear a roster spot. Coach Byron Scott said the team signed Uzoh rather than D-League standout and ex-Cav Manny Harris because they need a point guard with Kyrie Irving out (Twitter link).
