Cavaliers recall Samardo Samuels from D-League

The Cavaliers brought back forward Samardo Samuels on Monday after a short, dominant stint in the D-League.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have recalled forward Samardo Samuels from the D-League's Canton Charge, the organization's exclusively owned and operated franchise, the team announced on Monday. Samuels has split this season between Cleveland and Canton as the Cavaliers have tried to get him some consistent playing time.

Samuels played in only two games for the Charge during his short stint with the team, both as a starter. He was one of Canton's best players during the period, leading the team to a pair of victories while averaging 20.5 points per game on 57 percent shooting and 10.5 rebounds per game.

The 23-year-old out of Louisville hasn't fared nearly as well in his limited minutes with the Cavaliers this season, struggling in nearly every facet of play. Playing just 10.9 minutes per game over 18 contests, he's put up per game averages of 3.2 points and 1.6 rebounds on 37 percent shooting, recording more fouls than rebounds.

Still, despite his struggles in Cleveland this year, the organization needs some size at the moment with starting center Anderson Varejao battling a knee injury. The 6'9", 260-pound Samuels can certainly provide that.
