Report: Nik Stauskas is signing with the Cleveland Cavaliers for remainder of the season

#Nik Stauskas

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cleveland Cavaliers are signing guard Nik Stauskas (Mississauga, ON) on a deal for the remainder of the season.

You could argue that no player had a more hectic trade deadline than the Mississauga-native. He started his week with the Portland Trail Blazers but was traded to the Houston Rockets in a three-team deal that sent Cavaliers' forward Rodney Hood to Portland.

Houston then moved Stauskas to the Indiana Pacers who waived the shooting guard, giving him this opportunity to fill the Cavaliers' final open roster spot.

Stauskas appeared in 44 games with the Blazers averaging 6.1 points per game. He is shooting 41.9 percent from the field and 34.4 percent from beyond the arc.

This will be the fifth NBA team that Stauskas has played for in his four-year career.
