    From a few outlets:

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

    Other teams (including the T-Wolves) put in a waiver claim but the Cavs priority (worse record) nabbed him first.


    ----

    Leuer - 2011 2nd-round draft pick of the Bucks, traded to Houston during the off-season.

    6' 10", 230lb, PF, 23 years old, on the 2nd year of a cheap 2-year contract. Averaged 4.7 points in 46 games in 2011.

    Wolves put in a waiver claim for Jon Leuer but Cleveland got him first

    Very nice under-the-radar move.

    Got a stretch four for 754k.

    Better luck next time?

    not a bad signing (claiming?) at all but the front court sure is getting crowded...

    I like this move. I think he can be a decent piece off the bench.

    Not the song I was expecting in a Jon Leuer highlight mix.

    I'll take him in the early battle over Luke Harangody for the Great White Hope...

    Re: Cavs Sign Jon Leuer (claimed off waivers)

    Yeah, I wish Leuer played SF, but his contract is so cheap that the Cavs can afford the risk and let them fight it out in training camp.

    I hope that won't prevent the Cavs from putting in other waiver claims...

    Move over Gody. Another prime FA is coming to Cleveland.

    Re: Cavs Sign Jon Leuer (claimed off waivers)

    This is a good pickup, IMHO. He's the guy I wanted the Cavs to get with the #32 pick in the 2011 draft, mainly because he did so well in the Hollinger draft rater. He had him as the 14th best prospect in the draft.

    I was pretty disappointed by the #32 pick in the 2011 draft. I figured that if the Cavs didn't take Valanciunas, they would take Leonard and Leuer. Instead it was Tristan and a trade. Now 13 months later, that trade is looking like a win. The Cavs got Leuer anyway and that trade will probably give them two high second round picks in the next two years. Sometimes this stuff just works out. Let's hope Tristan ends up also being a winning move.

    I don't think this is the end of Harangody. Probably just means he plays at the 3 more.

    If I'm not mistaken, the Cavs will be able to make him a restricted free agent next year if they keep him.

    I don't see the Cavs picking up E'twan Moore. They already have better small guards.

    Re: Cavs Sign Jon Leuer (claimed off waivers)

    This is the type of signings a rebuilding team should make. Cheap young kids who can become nice role players. No Batum or Ilyasova to big contracts.

    Leuer won't take us to the 8th or 9th seed, but may later become a nice player.

    Nicely done Cavs FO.

    Re: Cavs Sign Jon Leuer (claimed off waivers)

    This makes me want a trade for a certain center even more. Leuer would look quite nice next to said center...

    Wow. A Brad Lohaus comp. Blast from the past.

    He was the other half with Theodore "Blue" Edwards for the Bucks on the original NBA Jam.

    I like it. We need more options to spread the floor and he is young with some upside.

    Re: Cavs Sign Jon Leuer (claimed off waivers)

    I was hoping Cavs would take a chance on Leuer

    He looked decent for the Bucks when he got time and is going to be Erden's replacement since Semih went to Turkey iirc
