Hudson May Be Playing His Way Into Contract

Lester Hudson, signed by the Cavaliers to a 10-day contract on March 30, has been excellent off the bench in the wake of Kyrie Irving's shoulder injury.  According to Tom Reed and Mary Schmitt Boyer of the Cleveland Plain Dealer, head coach Byron Scott told the team's front office that Hudson "was doing great."

Headed into tonight's matchup against the Nets, Hudson has averaged 10 points, 4 assists and over 3 boards in the 5 games since signing.  Today is the last day of that contract and Hudson is making it hard for the Cavs not to re-up him.  Hudson already has 26 points in 24 minutes on 9-of-18 shooting and just sent the game into overtime with a 3-pointer in the final seconds.

Reed and Schmitt think it's likely, given his performance, that Hudson gets at least another 10-day look from Cleveland.
