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.
