Free agent guard Marcus Thornton has agreed to a 10-day contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to a report from ESPN.
By league rules, the Cavs had to add a 14th player to the roster by Thursday.
Thornton, 25, is a 6-foot-4 guard and had played 37 games for the Canton Charge of the G League this season. He is averaging 18.8 points and is shooting 40 percent on 3-pointers.
Thornton was drafted by the Boston Celtics in the second round (No. 45 overall) in 2015. He played collegiately at William & Mary and was named Colonial Athletic Association Player of the year in 2014-15.
He has also played in Italy and Australia, and with the Maine Red Claws of the G League. The Cavs can sign Thornton to a second 10-day contract once the current one expires, but would have to release or sign him for the rest of the year after the second, should they go that route.
