Cleveland is looking for a shotblocker, and has been tied to several of the league’s big men such as Gorgui Deng and Nerlens Noel. Moreland was known in college for his shot blocking ability, setting the Oregon State record during his freshmen season with 69.
Cleveland clearly sees potential in Moreland. Cleveland was linked with Moreland back in late August/early September and could possibly sign him onto a Canton Charge contract even if he does not successfully earn a roster spot.
Here are some highlights from a 19-point, 23-rebound game by Moreland in the D-League:
