Cleveland Cavaliers Agree To Two-Year Deal With Joey Graham

The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a two-year deal with free agent forward Joey Graham, according to reports from Yahoo!’s Marc Spears and Graham’s agent, Byron Irvin.

Graham is entering his sixth season out of Oklahoma State, and averaged 4.2 points and 2.0 rebounds in 12.0 minutes off the bench for Denver last season. His highlight was Game Six of the Utah series, where he exploded for 21 points and 10 rebounds in 24 minutes while filling in for an injured Nene.

A bit of a tweener between the three and four spot, Graham joins a crowded forward position in Cleveland with Anderson Varejao, J.J. Hickson, Antawn Jamison, Jamario Moon, Leon Powe, and Jawad Williams (if he’s re-signed, and all indications are that he will be).

This move will more than likely allow the Cavs to send Christian Eyenga to the D-League to start the season, where he can get more reps and playing time while developing his still raw offensive game.

The deal is worth $2.1 million over two seasons.
