Cavaliers Sign Pete Nance To Two-Way Deal

The Cavaliers have signed free agent forward Pete Nance to a two-way contract, the team announced in a press release.

An undrafted rookie who played four college seasons at Northwestern and a fifth at North Carolina, Nance made two brief appearances with the Cavs last month while on a 10-day contract. That deal expired on January 27, making Nance an unrestricted free agent.

Nance was signed to an Exhibit 10 contract in September by the Cavs, then waived during training camp. He has spent the majority of 2023/24 with the Cleveland Charge, the Cavs’ G League affiliate.

In 29 Showcase Cup and regular season games with the Charge, he has averaged 13.6 PPG, 7.9 RPG, 3.1 APG and 1.5 BPG on .471/.353/.795 shooting.

The Cavs had an open two-way slot after promoting Craig Porter, so no further roster moves were necessary to sign Nance, who turned 24 years old today. Nance is the son of former Cavs legend Larry Nance and the younger brother of Larry Nance Jr., who spent parts of four seasons with Cleveland.
