While he didn’t get to hear his name called during the NBA Draft, Marques Bolden still has realized his NBA dream as not long after the draft ended he reached a deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers:
After going undrafted, Duke big man Marques Bolden has signed with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to source.

Bolden came in to Duke as the #16 player in the ESPN Top 100 but injuries plagued his time at Duke. For his career he averaged 4 points, 3 rebounds, and a blocked shot while playing in 88 games (starting 24 of them).
He will likely spend time in the G League this season as a majority of rookies do, but with Cleveland in rebuilding mode, he should have a shot to earn a spot and playing time with the Cavs.
