Cavs sign Felix to 4-year deal
Those wondering if Carrick Felix would earn a spot on the Cavaliers' final roster might have gotten an answer.
The Cavs signed the second-round pick from Arizona State to a reported four-year contract, a league source confirmed on Monday.
The first three years of Felix's contract are guaranteed, according to HoopsWorld.com. The No. 33 overall pick in the 2013 draft will earn $510,000 in 2013-14, about $20,000 more than the league minimum.
The 6-foot-6, 210-pound swingman played well at the Las Vegas Summer League. The Arizona State product averaged 7.2 points and 5.4 rebounds per game. Defensively, he was impressive and caught the eye of Cavs coach Mike Brown.
The Cavs have yet to announce the signing of any of their draft picks. UNLV power forward Anthony Bennett was the first overall pick and Russian swingman Sergey Karasev was the No. 19 selection.
Felix and guard Ricky Ledo of the Mavs are the only two second-round picks to receive four-year contracts thus far, HoopsWorld reported.
Also, St. Mary's point guard Matthew Dellavedova has been invited to Cavs' training camp, a source confirmed. He caught the eye of the Cavs at summer league.
Dellavedova, a native of Australia, is in the running to be the Cavs' third point guard behind Kyrie Irving and Jarrett Jack.
Dellavedova averaged 2.8 points and 3.0 assists in five summer-league games.
