NBA Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers sign Arinze Onuaku to second 10-Day contract

After sending forward Earl Clark (who has since been released and signed by the New York Knicks), big man Henry Sims and a couple of second round picks to the Philadelphia 76ers to acquire veteran big man Spencer Hawes, the Cavaliers needed to fill out their roster.

In order to do that, they signed power forward/center Arinze Onuaku out of the NBA’s Developmental League, where he was playing with the Canton Charge.

With that contract set to expire, the Cavaliers have decided to keep Onuaku around for at least 10 more days.

The Cavaliers signed Onuaku to a second 10-day contract, according to the official site of the Cavaliers.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed forward/center Arinze Onuaku from the Canton Charge, the Cavaliers exclusively owned and operated NBA Development League team, to a second 10-day contract, Cavaliers acting General Manager David Griffin announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts.

After 10 days, the Cavaliers must decide if they want to keep Onuaku for the rest of the season or let him go.

Onuaku is averaging 0.8 points and 1.8 rebounds in 6.5 minutes per game this season.
