The contract is more about next year and allows the Cavaliers to evaluate White during summer league.

Okaro White’s 10-day contract with the Cavaliers expired this week and the team is still working through what to do with its two open roster spots for the playoffs. White, 25, did not play for the Cavs while under contract, which expired after the game Tuesday. He is still working himself into shape after a broken foot suffered early this season with the Miami Heat. The Cavs signed him in part to fulfill a requirement to have at least 14 players under contract, but also to work him out with the possibility of signing him long term. The Cavs aren’t required to sign someone else for another 10 days, but a team source said another player will likely be brought in much sooner.
Storyline: Okaro White Free Agency
Cleveland currently has two open roster spots and has a history of signing players on the final day of the regular season for the playoffs. Kendrick Perkins is still on the Cavs’ radar and remains a possibility, sources said. Perkins played for part of this season with Cleveland’s G League affiliate in Canton but left the organization in February. The Cavs could also sign White, or take “two way” player John Holland and sign him to an NBA contract.
