Cavs claim Leuer off waivers

The Cleveland Cavaliers have claimed forward Jon Leuer off waivers from the Houston Rockets.

Leuer, who was waived on Wednesday, averaged 4.7 points and shot 50.8 percent from the field to go with 2.6 rebounds in his rookie season. He played in 46 games, starting 12 of them.

"Jon is a young, athletic, hard-working post player. He will add depth and also bring a perimeter shooting element to our big positions," Cavs general manager Chris Grant said. "We're happy to add Jon to our team and looking forward to his continued growth and development as a Cavalier."
