The Cleveland Cavaliers added two guards to their training camp roster. Mitch Ballock and R.J. Nembhard both signed non-guaranteed deals to join the Cavs for the preseason.
Ballock went undrafted out of Creighton at the 2021 NBA Draft. The 6'5'' guard was a three-year starter for the Bluejays. As a senior, Ballock averaged 9.9 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.6 assists per game. Overall, Ballock shot 39.8% on three-pointers in his four years at Creighton.
Nembhard also went undrafted at the 2021 NBA Draft. The TCU product started in his junior and senior seasons. As a senior, Nembhard averaged 15.7 points, 4.3 rebounds and 4.0 assists per game. At 6'5'', Nembhard has good size for a point guard.
Both players are likely to join the Cavaliers G-League affiliate, the Charge, following the preseason.
The Cavs roster now stands at 19 players.
