Found July 20, 2012 on Waiting For Next Year:

The Cleveland Cavaliers will sign stretch forward Jon Leuer, according to Zach Lowe of Sports Illustrated.

Cavs will sign Jon Leuer, waived this week by Houston.

— Zach Lowe (@ZachLowe_SI) July 20, 2012

Leuer was waived by the Rockets just two days ago and the Cavs were reportedly one of several teams to show interest, edging out the Minnesota Timberwolves with their waiver claim.

The Rockets acquired his rights after a trade with the Bucks this offseason. As a rookie playing for Milwaukee, Leuer averaged 4.7 points and 2.6 rebounds in 12 minutes. Many Big Ten fans are familiar with Leuer’s work. The 6’10 Wisconsin native had a successful career in Madison and his size and offensive skill can contribute at the NBA level.
