Tre Scott

Cavaliers Waive Tre Scott

Tre Scott, who signed a non-guaranteed training camp contract with the Cavaliers last week, has been waived by the team, according to’s transactions log.

The 24-year-old forward signed with the Jazz in 2020 after going undrafted out of Cincinnati and played for the Salt Lake City Stars in the G League, averaging 10.1 points and 5.3 rebounds in 15 games. He also played five games for Cleveland last month in the Las Vegas Summer League.

Scott was one of six players who signed non-guaranteed contracts with the Cavs this summer. His departure leaves the team with 17 players under contract – including 10 fully guaranteed and one two-way – plus reported agreements with Denzel Valentine and Kevin Pangos.

Cavaliers Sign Tre Scott To Camp Deal

The Cavaliers have signed free agent forward Tre Scott to a non-guaranteed training camp contract, according to RealGM’s transactions log.

Scott, 24, went undrafted out of Cincinnati in 2020 and signed an Exhibit 10 contract with Utah. He was only under contract with the Jazz for three days, but that deal put him on track to join the team’s G League affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars, for the abridged 2021 NBAGL season.

In 15 games for the Stars, the 6’8″ forward averaged 10.1 PPG, 5.3 RPG, and 2.1 APG on .443/.296/.714 shooting in 29.3 minutes per contest. Scott also played for Cleveland in the Las Vegas Summer League last month, averaging 5.6 PPG and 3.0 RPG in five games (14.6 MPG).

While the Cavaliers are only carrying 10 players on fully guaranteed contracts, Scott will be their sixth player on a non-guaranteed deal, so it will be an uphill battle to earn a spot on the 15-man regular season roster. However, Cleveland still has both of its two-way slots open, so Scott could be in the mix to fill one of those.

Jazz Waive Trevon Bluiett, Three Others

The Jazz have waived guard Trevon Bluiett and three undrafted rookies — center Romaro Gill, forward Tre Scott and guard Jake Toolson — according to a team press release.

Utah needed to make room on its 20-man roster for two new additions, guard Yogi Ferrell and forward Malcolm Miller.

Some or all of the players let go on Friday could wind up with the Jazz’s G League club in Salt Lake City if they clear waivers.

Bluiett appeared in 41 games with the Salt Lake City Stars last season, averaging 14.9 PPG,  3.4 RPG and 2.5 APG in 29.3 MPG.

Gill, an undrafted rookie out of Seton Hall, posted averages of 7.8 PPG, 5.6 RPG and 3.2 BPG in 30 games last season.

Scott was a four-year player at Cincinnati and averaged 11.4 PPG and 10.5 RPG in 33.7 MPG for the Bearcats last season.

Toolson spent two seasons at BYU before transferring to Utah Valley and then back to BYU last season. He averaged 15.2 PPG, 4.8 RPG and 3.9 APG as a senior.

Jazz Sign Tre Scott

After opening up a roster spot on Tuesday by waiving Nigel Williams-Goss, the Jazz have filled it by signing rookie forward Tre Scott, the team announced today in a press release.

Scott, 24, went undrafted last month after spending his four-year college career at Cincinnati. As a senior in 2019/20, he averaged 11.4 PPG and 10.5 RPG in 30 games (33.7 MPG), earning Defensive Player of the Year and Most Improved Player honors in the American Athletic Conference.

While the terms of Scott’s deal weren’t reported, this will almost certainly be an Exhibit 10 contract that sets him up to join Utah’s G League affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars, once he’s waived by the Jazz. Depending on how the NBAGL season plays out, he could be in line to earn a $50K bonus as a member of the Stars.

The Jazz now have a full 20-man roster and will have to make at least three cuts before next Monday’s regular season roster deadline. Scott, Romaro Gill, Jake Toolson, and Trevon Bluiett look like the probable odd men out.
