The Cavaliers have signed former first-round draft pick and free agent power forward Jarell Martin to a training camp contract.
Martin’s contract is not guaranteed, but he is expected to be given a chance to compete for one of the team’s open roster spots.
Martin, 25, is 6-foot-10 and appeared in 42 games with the Orlando Magic last season, averaging 2.7 points and 1.7 rebounds.
The LSU product was originally selected by the Memphis Grizzlies with the No. 25 overall pick in 2015. He averaged career-highs of 7.7 points and 4.4 boards in 73 games with the Grizzlies in 2017-18.
As of now, the Cavs have 16 players under contract, with 13 of them on guaranteed deals. Along with Martin, the Cavs are bringing guards Sindarius Thornwell and J.P Macura, and undrafted center Marques Bolden to camp. That would put the Cavs at the 20-man offseason roster limit.
