Cavaliers sign rookies Dion Waiters and Tyler ZellerPosted by Inside Hoops
The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed 2012 NBA Draft picks, guard Dion Waiters (Syracuse) and forward/center Tyler Zeller (North Carolina), to contracts, Cavaliers General Manager Chris Grant announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts.
Players selected in the first round of the NBA Draft are guaranteed to receive a contact from the team. So, this is standard, and expected.
Waiters, 20, was selected by the Cavs with the fourth overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft. Zeller, 22, was drafted 17th overall by the Dallas Mavericks and his draft rights were acquired by the Cavs in a draft night trade.
