Scott, who is a 6-foot-8 small forward, went undrafted out of Cincinnati in 2020. During his final season at the university, Scott was named the American Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year as well as a member of the All-AAC first team.
Scott had initially signed with Puerto Rican club Leones de Ponce last year, before joining the Salt Lake City Stars of the G League. He averaged 10.1 points, 5.3 rebounds, and 1.9 assists during his 15 games for the Jazz affiliate.
The 24-year-old was on Cleveland’s summer league squad and while he’ll face competition to make the NBA club, he could be a strong candidate for the G League’s Canton Charge.
Cleveland Hands Out More Training Camp Deals
The team is also expected to sign Mitch Ballock to a training camp deal, JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors reports. Ballock played for the Sixers’ Summer League team this past offseason after going undrafted out of Creighton.
RJ Nembhard is also joining Cleveland during training camp after he agreed to a deal with the team, Shaw adds.

- The Cavaliers are eyeing Garrison Mathews as the franchise looks to round out its rotation. Cleveland needs additional depth on the wing and has Mathews and Denzel Valentine on its radar, as Fedor reports.
