Cavaliers Sign Guard/Forward D.J. Kennedy

The Cavaliers announced this afternoon that they have signed guard/forward D.J. Kennedy to fill the roster spot vacated by the departure of guard Lester Hudson following his two 10-day contracts. Kennedy, 22, played this season for the Erie Bayhawks of the D-League, averaging 15.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, and 4.4 assists in over 37 minutes per contest.  The 6’6″ Kennedy played four seasons at St. John’s, where he averaged 11.7 points and 6.1 rebounds as a four-year starter. Kennedy becomes the fourth player currently on the team to have spent time this season in the development league (Donald Sloan, Manny Harris, Luke Harangody) and could get some playing time with Alonzo Gee’s ankle injury keeping him out of the past three games.

    I assume this was the guy on the bench who I didn’t recognize in that loss to the Spurs yesterday.  He has the look of a future all-star, let’s sign him to a big contact.
