According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Cleveland Cavaliers are close to acquiring forward Sam Dekker from the Los Angeles Clippers.

Wojnarowski added the ways in which the deal will be beneficial for both teams involved: the Clippers will free up a roster spot while the Cavs provide an opportunity for Dekker to contribute in an increased role.

Dekker, who spent his first two NBA seasons with the Houston Rockets, was traded to L.A. last summer in the deal that sent nine-time All-Star Chris Paul to Houston. In his lone season with the Clippers, Dekker appeared in 73 games, averaging 4.2 points and 2.4 rebounds while playing 12.1 minutes per contest.
