The Cavaliers have agreed to sign free agent shooting guard J.P. Macura to a partially guaranteed contract, reports Emiliano Carchia of Sportando (via Twitter). Joe Vardon and Shams Charania of The Athletic (Twitter link) classify the agreement as an Exhibit 10 deal.
Macura, a former Xavier standout, signed a two-way contract with the Hornets last July and spent the entire 2018/19 season with the organization. Although he only appeared in two games for Charlotte, the 24-year-old was a regular starter for the team’s G League affiliate, the Greensboro Swarm.
In 30 games (28 starts) for Greensboro, Macura averaged 16.4 PPG with a .460/.368/.783 shooting line in 27.9 minutes per game.
Macura’s Exhibit 10 deal with Cleveland could make him a candidate to fill the team’s open two-way contract slot if he impresses in camp. Dean Wade currently holds the Cavs’ other two-way contract.
