Shortly after opening up a spot on their roster by waiving Edy Tavares, the Cavaliers have filled that spot again, announcing today in a press release that they’ve signed undrafted rookie guard Isaac Hamilton. Cleveland’s roster is now back up to 20 players.
Hamilton, 23, played his college ball at UCLA, averaging 14.1 PPG with a shooting line of .453/.366/.825 during his final year with the Bruins. He was one of the squad’s top threats from outside, making 2.1 three-pointers per game.
Hamilton figures to get a non-guaranteed deal from the Cavs, and won’t be on the club’s regular season roster. By signing him to an NBA contract now, Cleveland will have the opportunity to have him join the Canton Charge in the G League as an affiliate player.
