Adrian Wojnarowski: Cavaliers signed guard Nik Stauskas, team says.
More Rumors in this Storyline
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.
The Portland Trail Blazers have signed free agent guard Nik Stauskas, it was announced today by president of basketball operations Neil Olshey.

The FBI is investigating whether the longtime business manager of Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball and his family defrauded them of millions of dollars, according to two law enforcement officials. Until recently, Ball said he and his family had no idea that Gregory Alan Foster, who he described as “like my second dad,” had served time in federal prison for taking part in a scheme that deprived investors of $3.735 million.
Authorities say the investigation is focused on allegations included in a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court this month by Lonzo Ball and Big Baller Brand. The suit alleges Foster took more than $1.5 million out of the company’s bank accounts and accepted “substantial undisclosed referral fees” from at least eight loans he arranged on behalf of the company.
