Okaro White Signs 10-Day Deal With Cavaliers

MARCH 19: The Cavs have officially signed White, according to a press release from the team. The signing was finalized on Sunday, so White’s 10-day deal will run through next Tuesday, March 27.

MARCH 18: The Cavaliers will sign forward Okaro White to a 10-day contract, tweets Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports.

White, 25, started the season with the Heat, but played just six games before being traded to the Hawks and then waived last month. He appeared in 35 games for Miami last season and is averaging 2.9 points and 2.3 rebounds throughout his career.

The Cavaliers needed to make a roster move to reach the NBA minimum of 14 players. The league permits teams to drop down to 13 for up to two weeks, which is where Cleveland has been since Marcus Thornton‘s 10-day deal expired March 3.

The Cavs are short handed with Larry Nance Jr., Cedi Osman and Rodney Hood all injured and Kyle Korver away from the team on a family emergency, but have been hesitant to add anyone to the roster because each move increases their tax penalties.

    I’m surprised Cleveland hasn’t tried adding someone like Monta Ellis or Deron Williams on a 10 Day.

        You can be sure LeBron is calling around trying to get another superteam together!

          Deron Williams is not going back to Cleveland after last years playoffs

    Just my speculation, but I assume the Cavs have no interest in Deron Williams after his performance last year in the playoffs and especially in the finals.

    Monta Ellis would have to serve suspension for marijuana before being eligible.
