Former Chicago Bulls player Denzel Valentine has reached a partially guaranteed two-season deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, Shams Charania reported from the outlet. The Athletic.
The one who was number 14 in the 2016 Draft leaves the Illinois franchise after four seasons, and sets course for some Cavaliers in the process of rebuilding, and who recently sealed the signing of Kevin Pangos from Zenit St. Petersburg.
Valentine, who has played a total of 232 official games, has NBA averages of 7.4 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2 assists in 19.8 minutes of play.
To make room for him on the team, the Cavaliers have decided to cut guard Damyean Dotson, journalist Kelsey Russo reported. The 27-year-old guard jumps to free agency after three courses at the New York Knicks and a final one in Cleveland where he played 46 official games.
Dotson, second round of the 2017 Draft, reaped figures of 6.7 points, 2 rebounds and 2 assists in 19.7 minutes per game.
