The Cavaliers have claimed forward Jon Leuer off waivers from the Rockets, Cavaliers GM Chris Grant announced today Friday. 

Leuer, 23, averaged 4.7 points on .508 shooting and 2.6 rebounds in 12.1 minutes per game in 46 games (12 starts) during his rookie season in 2011-12.  In his 12 starts, the 6-foot-10, 228-pound forward averaged 7.7 points on .560 shooting and 3.3 rebounds in 17.7 minutes per game.

“Jon is a young, athletic, hard-working post player. He will add depth and also bring a perimeter shooting element to our big positions,” said GM Chris Grant. “We’re happy to add Jon to our team and looking forward to his continued growth and development as a Cavalier.”
