The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to an Exhibit 10 training camp deal with center Marques Bolden, league sources tell cleveland.com. After not being selected in the 2019 NBA Draft, Bolden played for the Cavaliers during summer league. He will now come to training camp to compete for one of the final roster spots. Following JR Smith’s departure, the Cavs have 13 players under contract, two below the maximum number allowed. The Cavs also have an open two-way contract.
Bolden, 6-foot-11, averaged 6.8 points and 4.0 rebounds in summer league action. Because of Cleveland’s roster makeup, Bolden will be one of the few bigs invited to training camp. Last week, the team agreed to an Exhibit 10 deal with shooting guard J.P. Macura, who will also be looking to claim one of the final spots. According to sources, the Cavs are not expecting to have a full roster going into the season opener. They have a few minimum-level players on their radar for the 14th spot, but nothing lined up quite yet. They might even wait until after camp to see which players get released from other NBA teams.
According to sources, undrafted rookie Marques Bolden was receiving two-way contract interest before joining the summer Cavs. The showcase gave him a chance to prove he was a different player than the one miscast at Duke. “Have a different energy level than college,” Bolden said when asked what he was hoping to show. “I feel like that was the biggest knock on me personally, so being able to defend ball screens and getting out on the defensive end where I was needed and playing hard.”
