Cavaliers Sign Undrafted Power Forward Samardo Samuels

Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports, via Twitter, that the Cleveland Cavaliers have made their first successful free-agent addition of the summer, signing undrafted PF Samardo Samuels to “a multi-year deal” with a partial first-year guarantee, which means he “is likely to make the team.”

Samuels, 21, averaged 15.3 points and 7.0 rebounds on 52.6% shooting during his sophomore season at Louisville, according to DraftExpress. He most recently played for the Chicago Bulls’ summer-league squad in Las Vegas, averaging 12.6 points and 7.4 rebounds there. His best outing came against the Cavs, when he poured in 19 points and 9 rebounds in just 25 minutes.
