The Cavaliers signed undrafted rookie center Alex Kirk on Monday. Kirk, the 7-foot, 245-pounder who played on the Cavs’ summer league team, averaged 10 points and 6.8 rebounds during three seasons at New Mexico.
He averaged 13.3 points and 8.7 rebounds last season and was named to the Mountain West Conference’s defense team.
Kirk averaged 5.2 points and 3.4 rebounds in five games with the Cavs’ summer league team. After trading Tyler Zeller and losing Spencer Hawes in free agency, the Cavs have spent the last few weeks shopping for another big.
The Cavs now have 14 players under contract, but that number is likely to continue fluctuating in the coming weeks.
