The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a multi-year contract with Jordan Bell, Chris Fedor of Cleveland.com reports. Bell had been a free agent since he was cut by the Memphis Grizzlies in March.
When the two parties put pen to paper, Cleveland will officially be Bell’s fourth NBA team in 2019-20. The 25-year-old signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves last offseason and was subsequently traded to the Houston Rockets and Grizzlies.
While Bell’s 2019-20 campaign has been anything but stable, his career got off on solid footing when he debuted with the Golden State Warriors in 2017-18. That year Bell averaged a productive 4.6 points and 3.6 rebounds per game in a bench role for the NBA champions.
The Cavaliers will look to tap into Bell’s initially lofty potential and have plenty of solid big men available to model that behavior.
Although Cleveland won’t be playing at Disney World next month, Bell will join a frontcourt that already includes established veterans Andre Drummond, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson.
