Chris Reichert (@Chris_Reichert) – Jerrelle Benimon has agreed to a training camp deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to a source.

Benimon had came to an agreement for a 10-day contract on March 6 this year with the Utah Jazz, the American professional basketball team based in Utah’s Salt Lake City. According to Fear The Sword, he played a total of three minutes for the team and he was named to the 2015 All-NBA D-League first team and the All-Rookie first team on April 22. He had recorded an average of 6.2 points and 7.6 rebounds with the team.

There is no doubt for Cleveland Cavaliers on the performance of Benimon as he had established himself as a very productive player in the D-League. His performance also hinted that he could endear himself at the front office and challenge for a roster spot. However, his salary with Cleveland Cavaliers is still not declared. Probably the agreement is at a nascent stage and we hope we will get the details very soon.

After leading Towson Tigers (a basketball team that represents Towson, Maryland-based Towson University) to the greatest single-season turnaround in the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I history, Benimon became the Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Year for 2012-2013. The Idaho Stampede of NBA Development League acquired him on November 18 last year. He spent most of the last season in D-League, as confirmed by Basket USA, where he marked in altogether 44 games played with Idaho Stampede a record of 19.8 points, 11 rebounds and 4.4 assists average.
