“I just finished a season in Spain, the season got cut short because I had to have surgery on my knee, unfortunately,” Stauskas told McCormick. “It was my first experience overseas in the Euro League and it was eye-opening. It was an enjoyable experience. The level of competition was great. I only signed a one-year deal here. I’ll be a free agent again. My main focus right now is just getting myself healthy after the surgery. I really don’t know what the next chapter brings for me but the goal for me is to always get back to the NBA at some point. I’ll continue working for that no matter what.”
That potential career path won't be pursued until his playing days are over. For now, though, he plans to get as much experience as he can in his home country of Canada. “The last couple of years I’ve done some work with TSN, the Toronto Sports Network, in Canada, doing Raptors playoff coverage,” Stauskas said. “I plan to continue doing that as much as I can while I visit my family back in Toronto. For me, that’s just something that’s good practice, good repetition, for a possible future job doing that full-time when I’m done playing.”

The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed guard Nik Stauskas to a deal for the remainder of the season, league sources told cleveland.com Monday morning.
Stauskas was first acquired by the Cavs in last week’s Rodney Hood trade. Two days later, Stauskas was sent to the Houston Rockets -- part of the three-team deal involving Alec Burks. Then, prior to Thursday’s trade deadline, Houston shipped Stauskas to the Indiana Pacers, where he was ultimately waived. Because he was traded once more by Houston after his brief stop in Cleveland and then waived by another team, in this case Indiana, the Cavs were able to sign him.
The Indiana Pacers announced Friday they have waived Nik Stauskas and Wade Baldwin. Stauskas and Baldwin were acquired from the Houston Rockets on Feb. 7, along with a second-round draft pick in 2021 and the rights to Maarty Leunen, who is currently playing in Italy.
