Cavs to sign shooting guard Macura to Exhibit 10 deal

Shooting guard J.P. Macura appeared in two games with the Hornets last season as a rookie.

The Cavaliers have agreed to a contract with free agent guard J.P. Macura, according to Emiliano Carchia of Sportando.

The deal is reportedly an Exhibit 10 training camp contract.

The Cavaliers currently have one of two two-way spots open, and with an Exhibit 10 deal, Macura is undoubtedly a candidate for the second. Undrafted rookie power forward Dean Wade has already secured the other.

Macura is 6-foot-5 and went undrafted out of Xavier in 2018. He signed a two-way contract with the Charlotte Hornets prior to last season, spending most of his time with the Greensboro Swarm of the G League.

He appeared in just two games with the Hornets and averaged 16.4 points with the Swarm.

Macura averaged 12.6 points as a senior at Xavier for a 29-6 team that entered the NCAA tournament as the No. 1 seed. He earned the nickname “Dennis the Menace,” for his occasional taunting of opponents.

An Exhibit 10 contract is a one-year, minimum salary deal. It includes an Exhibit 10 attachment, which allows teams to convert it to a two-way deal as they see fit.
