SUNDAY, 3:14pm: The Cavaliers have reached a deal with free agent Jared Cunningham, tweets Shams Charania of RealGM. The 6’4″ guard recently committed to join the team in camp, according to Charania. Cunningham would appear to stand a decent chance to remain on the roster come opening night, as the Cavs have deals with only 11 other players so far.

Cunningham appeared in 19 games with the Clippers last season, averaging 1.8 points and 0.5 assists in 4.7 minutes. He was traded to the Sixers on January 7th, but was waived the same day. Cunningham has also been with the Mavericks, Hawks and Kings in his three-year NBA career.

Cunningham was drafted by Cleveland with the 24th pick in 2012, but was shipped to Dallas in a draft-day deal. He was part of the Utah Jazz team during this year’s summer league.
