DJ Stephens RumorsAll NBA Players
The Cavaliers have signed center Michael Dunigan, the team revealed on its training camp roster, one that also officially confirmed earlier reports of deals with Jared Cunningham, Austin Daye, Chris Johnson, Nick Minnerath and D.J. Stephens. Quinn Cook also appears on the roster, so it looks like he and the team have worked out a deal, as expected. Cleveland has 20 players, 13 of whom have fully guaranteed contracts, though those totals don’t include Tristan Thompson, who remains in restricted free agency with Thursday looming as the final day for him to sign his qualifying offer before it expires. The Cavs would have to waive a player before signing Thompson, since they’re at the preseason roster limit.
High-flying swingman D.J. Stephens has agreed to a training camp deal with the Cavaliers, a league source tells Hoops Rumors. Stephens appeared in three contests for the Bucks while on a 10-day contract in 2013/14 and he’ll now look to get back to NBA action with Cleveland in 2015/16.
Stephens, who was not selected in the 2013 NBA Draft but played in Greece last season, is a longshot to make the roster. But Coach Monty Williams said Stephens might be the best athlete in the NBA. “I have not seen anybody jump that high,” Williams said. ”He’s a once in a generation athlete. He can almost touch the top of the backboard. That’s how high he can jump.”
