The Cleveland Cavaliers elected not to re-sign guard Lester Hudson after his second 10-day contract expired Wednesday, according to Mary Schmitt Boyer of The Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Hudson, whose second 10-day contract expired on Wednesday, likely is heading to another team, although it was not clear yet where. His agent, Tyler Glass, said he had been pressing the Cavs to sign Hudson for the rest of the season before his second 10-day contract ran out.

The Cavaliers signed Hudson to his first 10-day contract on March 30 after Daniel Gibson tore a tendon in his foot, sidelining him for the duration of the season. Hudson has played 13 games with Cleveland this season, averaging 12.7 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.7 assists and 1.1 steals per game.

Before signing with the Cavaliers, Hudson was a member of the Austin Toros of the D-League. Hudson is expected to sign with another NBA team for the remainder of the season in the upcoming days.
