NBA Free Agency 2012: Cavs Expected To Sign Recently-Waived Forward Jon Leuer

After being released by the Houston Rockets earlier in the week, former Wisconsin Badgers forward and NBA second-round pick Jon Leuer is expected to sign with the Cavaliers according to Sports Illustrated's Zach Lowe:

A 6-foot-10 big man with advanced perimeter skills for his size, Leuer opted to play in Germany last season as the NBA campaign was marred with uncertainty at the time. He averaged just shy of 15 points per game with seven rebounds per night for the Fraport Skyliners, but utilized an opt-out clause when the NBA returned and suited up for 46 games with the Milwaukee Bucks.

Almost immediately after acquiring his services in a draft-day trade with the Bucks, the Rockets clearly determined that the severely untested Leuer would not be a good fit in their system and promptly cut ties with the 23-year-old big man. Hopefully for the Cavaliers' sake, Leuer will waste little time making his two former teams pay dearly for letting him slip away so easily.
