The Cleveland Cavaliers explored their options in order to sign young promising players for the franchise’s rebuilding process the previous days.
According to Chris Fedor of cleveland.com, the Cavs were interested in signing the former Knicks guard Allonzo Trier, after he cleared waivers.
Cleveland ended up agreeing to a deal with former Minnesota forward Jordan Bell and Dean Wade.
Trier rejected to sign for the reason that he was looking for more money and a different structure on his contract, per Fedor.
The 24-year-old has averaged just under 10 points per game in his career while shooting 48% from the field, 38% from three-point range and 80% on his free-throw attempts.
Furthermore, Trier is eligible for signing a contract with one of the 22 teams that they will participate in the NBA season restart.
Maybe, the young guard wants to play in order to amp up his chances to sign another deal in the coming offseason in October.
