Jonathan Holmes To Play Overseas

Forward Jonathan Holmes is headed overseas, having agreed to a contract with FC Barcelona, the team announced (translation via Emiliano Carchia of Sportando). The dollar amount of the arrangement is unknown, but the pact is for two months with an option for the remainder of the season, per the release.

Holmes spent the preseason with the Cavaliers, appearing in six contests and averaging 9.7 points, 3.3 rebounds and 0.8 assists in 17.4 minutes per outing. His shooting line was .489/.333/1.000. The forward was waived by Cleveland on October 20th and was seemingly ticked for the Canton Charge of the NBA D-League after Cleveland named him as one of its affiliate players.

The 23-year-old, who played his college ball at Texas, went undrafted in 2015 after his final season with the Longhorns. He joined the Lakers for training camp, and suffered a dislocated right shoulder before the season began. While the injury sidelined him for the next several months, it did ensure that he earned his full salary for the 2015/16 from Los Angeles. Holmes’ minimum salary deal with the Cavs this season was non-guaranteed, so he’s not collecting any salary after being cut by the team.
