Cavs sign Emanuel Terry

Cavs

With the start of the regular season right around the proverbial corner, several teams around the NBA landscape are still searching for players who they feel might bolster their roster. One such team is the Cleveland Cavs, who officially announced the signing of forward Emanuel Terry on Thursday.

Terry, now 23 years of age, spent his collegiate days at Lincoln Memorial University, where he led the Railsplitters to South Atlantic Conference regular season and tournament championships. As a senior (2017-18), the 6-9 forward racked up averages of 16.9 points, 10.3 rebounds, and 2.2 blocks per game. As a result of his outstanding play, Terry was named to the 2018 NABC Coaches’ Division II All-America team.

In 120 games played at Lincoln Memorial (72 starts), Terry posted averages of 9.6 points on 70.4 percent shooting from the field, 7.1 rebounds, and 1.9 blocks in 18.6 minutes per game.

Though he wasn’t selected in this year’s Draft, Terry still has some experience in the NBA. In fact, he was signed by the Denver Nuggets to play on their NBA Summer League team, where he averaged 7.4 points and 5.0 rebounds in 17.6 minutes per contest. The Nuggets were impressed with Terry’s game, but they ultimately decided to waive him on October 8.

With the signing of Emanuel, the Cavs’ roster now stands at 20 men. 15 men are allowed on a regular season roster (plus a pair of two-way contracts), which means a few cuts will be on the way.

The Cavs will be back in action on Friday night, when they’ll face off against the Detroit Pistons inside the Breslin Center. Tip-off is set for 7:00 p.m. EST.
