The Cleveland Cavaliers are signing Mfiondu Kabengele for the remainder of the season, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wojnarowski adds that the Burlington, Ontario native has non-guarantees in his contract with the Cavaliers for the 2021-22 and 2022-23 season.

The No. 27 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, Kabengele spent his rookie season with the LA Clippers. He logged most of his minutes with the team's G League affiliate, the Agua Caliente Clippers, with whom he dominated with averages of 18.7 points, 9.4 rebounds and 1.9 blocks over 27 games.

Kabengele started this season on the Clippers but was traded to the Sacramento Kings ahead of the trade deadline and subsequently waived.

On April 10, Kabengele signed a 10-day contract with the Cavaliers. He signed a second 10-day contract on April 21.

Kabengele has appeared in six games with the Cavaliers, averaging 2.8 points, 1.3 rebounds and 0.7 assists in 7.4 minutes of play. He scored a season-high eight points in Cleveland's loss to the Orlando Magic on April 28, 2021.
