The American professional basketball player, D J Stephens, who last played for Zenit Saint Petersburg of the VTB United League, is likely to join Cleveland Cavaliers this season. Read below if you want to know more about the deal.
According to Cleveland.com, the 6 feet and 5 inches shooting guard and small forward positioned Stephens has agreed to sign a training camp deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers. Since, the deal is at a very early stage, we are yet to be informed about his salary and other terms of the contract.
Cleveland Cavaliers is now in a full swing to add basketball experts in its roster. Based on Wednesday’s announcement done from Cleveland Clinic Courts by General Manager of Cleveland Cavaliers, David Griffin, we have come to know that the team has also signed deal with center Sasha Kaun. Terms of the contract were not disclosed, but Chris Haynes said in August that Cleveland Cavaliers could agree for a two-year pact.
Seattle SuperSonics picked the 30-year-old Kaun as the final draft in the Sonic’s history before the settlement of the franchise to Oklahoma City. He is known for signing a three-year contract with the Russian team CSKA Moscow in 2008 worth €2,700,000. He then re-signed his contract with CSKA to stay for three additional seasons with the team.
The Cleveland Cavaliers has not yet decided what role Kaun would have with the team. It is said that his role is not defined because of a crowded frontcourt consisting of Kevin Love, Anderson Varejao, Timofey Mozgov and Tristan Thompson. The highly experienced Kaun is known for providing much-needed depth, which sometimes turns in a problem as the team has an experience of witnessing significant injuries throughout the regular season and the playoffs. Kaun is said to be a senior member of the Jayhawks National Championship.
