Cavs sign Marcus Morris to 10-day contract


Free agent Marcus Morris signed a 10-day contract with the Cavaliers and is available for Monday when Cleveland plays the Indiana Pacers.

Cleveland has three starters out with injuries and Morris attended shootaround with his new teammates hours before the game.

Guard Donovan Mitchell (nasal fracture), forward Evan Mobley (ankle) and guard Max Strus (knee) are not available Monday.

The Cavs are the third team to employ Morris this season. He played 37 games with the Philadelphia 76ers and was dealt to the Spurs in a three-team deal on Feb. 8 before agreeing to a contract buyout. He was waived Feb. 29 without playing a game for San Antonio.

Morris has played in 820 career games with the Houston Rockets, Phoenix Suns, Detroit Pistons, Boston Celtics, New York Knicks, L.A. Clippers and 76ers.

He has career averages of 12.1 points and 4.5 rebounds per game.
