Cavs Sign Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, Cut Alex Robinson

The Cavaliers have made a change to their 20-man offseason roster, signing former first-round pick Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot and waiving Alex Robinson to create the necessary roster spot. Joe Vardon of The Athletic first reported (via Twitter) the Cavs’ agreement with Luwawu-Cabarrot, while RealGM’s transactions log confirms both moves are official.

The 24th overall pick in the 2016 draft, Luwawu-Cabarrot spent his first two seasons in Philadelphia before being traded from the Sixers to the Thunder in the Dennis Schroder three-team trade in July 2018. After suiting up for Oklahoma City for the first half of 2018/19, the 24-year-old forward was traded again to Chicago in February.

In 171 total games for his three NBA teams, TLC has averaged 5.7 PPG and 1.9 RPG with a .387/.320/.820 shooting line. While he has yet to develop into a fully reliable NBA rotation player, he’ll get a chance to compete for a roster spot on the rebuilding Cavs, who only have 13 players on guaranteed contracts.

As for Robinson, he may be ticketed for the Canton Charge as an affiliate player unless another team scoops him up before the season begins. The undrafted guard out of TCU would be eligible for a bonus of up to $50K if he spends two months in the G League with the Charge.

Cavaliers Sign Alex Robinson

The Cavaliers have signed former TCU guard Alex Robinson, according to the Real GM Transactions Log. Details were not released, but it’s most likely a partially or non-guaranteed training camp deal.

After going undrafted in June, Robinson reached an agreement to play for the Kings in Summer League. He averaged 3.0 points and 1.3 assists in three games in Las Vegas.

Robinson set the career assist record during his three seasons with the Horned Frogs. He started out at Texas A&M before transferring after his freshman season.

Cleveland now projects to have a full 20-man roster heading into training camp, based on the expected signings of Marques BoldenJ.P. Macura and Sindarius Thornwell. The Cavs have 13 players with guaranteed contracts.
