Cavaliers Sign Nik Stauskas For Remainder Of Season 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Feb 11, 2019 2:54 pm

The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to sign Nik Stauskas to a contract for the remainder of the season.


The Cavaliers had an open roster spot following the deadline.


Stauskas was traded by the Blazers to the Rockets and then to the Pacers last week before he was waived.

Rockets were the last team to trade him so they were the team unable to resign him.

how is this Free agent signing legal. Thought He couldn't play for Portland,Cleveland, Houston or Indiana for the rest of the year. This is circumventing the NBA Salary Cap. :noway: :nonono: :noway:
