Cavaliers sign G Stauskas

The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed guard Nik Stauskas, the team announced Monday.

It's been a whirlwind week for the 25-year-old, a former lottery pick.

He was acquired by the Cavaliers last weekend from Portland, one of the players returned to Cleveland in the Rodney Hood deal. The Cavaliers then sent him to Houston as part of a three-team trade, and the Rockets shipped sent him to the Indiana Pacers before the NBA trading deadline last Thursday.

On Friday, Stauskas was waived by the Pacers.

Stauskas, a Michigan product, was selected No. 8 overall by Sacramento in the 2014 NBA Draft. He signed a one-year contract with the Trail Blazers last summer, and he also has played for Philadelphia and Brooklyn.

In Portland, he played in 44 games and averaged 6.1 points in 15.3 minutes per game.
