    Default OT: Cleveland ships out 2 Canadians, adds another (Dwight Powell)

    CLEVELAND, OH The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed forward Dwight Powell, the 45th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft, Cavaliers General Manager David Griffin announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts. Per league policy, terms of the contract were not released.

    Powell played four years at Stanford, appearing in 136 games (105 starts) with averages of 10.8 points and 6.3 rebounds in 26.2 minutes per game. The 6-11, 240-pound forward from Ontario, Canada is a two-time First Team All-Pac 12 selection. He averaged 14.0 points, 6.9 rebounds, 3.1 assists and 1.3 steals during his senior season and was the Pac 12 Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Powell also played for Canada in the World University Games in the summer of 2013.

    During the 2014 Samsung NBA Summer in Las Vegas, Powell appeared in three games (one start) for the Cavaliers and averaged 5.0 points and 3.7 rebounds in 11.3 minutes per game. He was originally acquired along with center Brendan Haywood in a trade with the Charlotte Hornets in exchange for guard Scotty Hopson and cash considerations on July 12, 2014.




    He's got the work ethic and physical toos to be a solid SF/PF. It'll be good to see how he continues to the formation of a respectable Canadian men's national team.

    It's a point of interest for some as there are many forum posters from Canada.

    I wonder if Powell's contract is guaranteed?

    I really hope Powell makes this team and get an fair sake at not spending the year in the NBDL. IF he gets in the right situation I feel he can have a 7-10 year NBA career.
