Sir’Dominic Pointer, a second-round draft choice by the Cavaliers in 2015, will play in Israel next season, tweets Chris Reichert of Upside and Motor. Pointer has agreed to a reported two-year contract with Hapoel Eilat, but the deal has an escape clause for the NBA (Twitter link).
Cleveland still holds the draft rights to Pointer after making him the 53rd overall selection a year ago. He played for the Cavaliers’ entry in the Las Vegas Summer League the past two seasons.
Pointer, a 6’6″ swingman, spent last season with Cleveland’s D-League affiliate in Canton, averaging 6.9 points and 4.5 rebounds in 50 games. Pointer, 24, played four years at St. John’s before joining the NBA.
