Marques Bolden Signs With Cleveland Cavaliers

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:

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.
