The Cavaliers selected Sir'Dominic Pointer with the 53rd overall pick in this summer's draft, and considering the fact that Cleveland is a veteran team intent on making a run at a title, his making the roster this season was never part of the plan.

Instead, Pointer will begin the year as a member of the Canton Charge of the D-League, according to Chris Haynes of Cleveland.com.

"Pointer, 23, will not attend training camp with the Cavaliers and instead will report to Canton once its camp opens up, the source said."

"Cleveland is intrigued with Pointer's size and defensive tenacity, and they see him as a potential versatile lockdown defender. They are committed to investing in his development to becoming a well-rounded player."

"In five Summer League games with Cleveland in July, he averaged 5.6 points, 3.0 rebounds, 1.4 blocks and 1.0 steals in 18.4 minutes per game. As of now, offensively, he's predominantly an athletic slasher who needs to develop a consistent outside shot."
