All Cavs rookies under contract

By Jason Lloyd Published: August 20, 2013

The Cavaliers have signed first-round draft picks Anthony Bennett and Sergey Karasev and second-round pick Carrick Felix to contracts, the team announced Tuesday.

It's all a formality in the NBA because the rookie scale contracts dictate what teams can pay.

While the exact figures aren't immediately available, Bennett was expected to sign for the maxium 120 percent of the rookie scale, which would be about $5.3 million for this season.

Felix signed his deal a few weeks ago but the team never formally announced it.

The Cavs will control both players for five seasons. 

The Cavs now have 15 players under contract for this season.
