Cleveland Cavaliers' Luke Harangody Assigned To NBA D-League

Well, it looks like #GodyTime is taking its show on the road: to Canton. The Cavs announced Thursday that Luke Harangody would be assigned to the Canton Charge, Cleveland's NBA D-League affiliate.

The 2010 second-round pick was traded to the Cavaliers along with Semih Erden for a 2013 second-rounder. He played in 21 games for the Cavs a year ago, giving the Cavs much-needed depth when the team was decimated by injuries.

While Harangody's shot is awkward, and he is a man without a position for his skillset and size, he plays hard, and quickly became a fan favorite when he was in the ballgame. The D-League will give him an opportunity to play regular minutes and continue to hone his game.

The 24-year-old forward was a volume scorer in college, and has a lack of lateral quickness as he routinely gets beat by more athletic players, but gives a lot of effort on the glass, and has a solid mid-range game. He shows promise; and anyone with his ability to get buckets has a spot in the league.

The Cavs also recently called Christian Eyenga up from the Charge. Cleveland is still struggling to find a comfortable rotation, especially at the end of the bench.
