Cavs forward Jon Leuer assigned to Canton Charge

The Cleveland Cavaliers officially moved forward Jon Leuer back to their NBA D-League affiliate on Thursday afternoon.

After spending the last two weeks with the Cavaliers, Cleveland forward Jon Leuer was assigned back to the Canton Charge of the NBA D-League on Thursday according to a report by Bob Finnan of The News-Herald.

A 6'10 forward in his second professional season, Leuer made five appearances this year for head coach Byron Scott's team, but has not been able to get on the floor since late November. Though he was added back to Cleveland's roster on Dec. 20 after a brief stint in the D-League, the former Wisconsin Badgers standout did not have a chance to see the court in a game situation before his latest demotion.

Leuer averaged 3.2 points, 2.0 rebounds and 14.4 minutes over his five-game stretch, but will resume a much more comfortable role as a high-usage player with the Charge. In six starts against D-League competition before his mid-December call-up, Leuer posted impressive averages of 20.3 points and 12.3 rebounds for a team that won five out of six games. Even though he hasn't yet been able to translate his hot shooting at the D-League level into NBA success, Leuer could be faced with many more opportunities to prove himself before the year is out.
