The Cavaliers have agreed to a two-way contract with rookie forward Dean Wade, general manager Koby Altman said Tuesday.
Wade is a 6-foot-10 “stretch four” out of Kansas State, where he averaged 12.9 points and 6.2 rebounds last season as a senior, shooting 38 percent on 3-pointers.
He was sidelined with a foot injury at the end of the season, but has been in action with the Cavs’ summer team, averaging 8.5 points and 4.5 rebounds in the first two games.
He finished with 11 points , six rebounds, two assists and two steals in 28 minutes in Sunday’s 82-75 win over the summer-league Chicago Bulls.
The Cavs selected Vanderbilt point guard Darius Garland with the No. 5 overall pick, Belmont small forward Dylan Windler at No. 26 and USC shooting guard Kevin Porter Jr. at No. 30.
