Lamar Stevens getting multi-year contract from Cavs: report

Lamar Stevens

Lamar Stevens didn’t get picked in the NBA draft out of Penn State, but he made the Cleveland Cavaliers roster anyway and has done a solid job off the bench this season.

Wednesday, news broke that Stevens has earned himself a multi-year contract from the Cavs, a sign that the team believes in him and will give him the opportunity to become an even bigger contributor.

Financial terms haven’t been disclosed yet, but Stevens certainly should be in line for a good payday — plus some assurances — with the new contract.

Stevens has played in 37 games this season, averaging 4.4 points and 2.5 rebounds while shooting 45.2 percent from the floor. He’s playing 13.1 minutes per game.

Stevens left Penn State as the second-leading scorer in program history with 2,207 points, just six shy of Talor Battle’s record of 2,213. Stevens would have broken that record, but the Big Ten Tournament and NCAA Tournament were canceled, costing him at least a couple more games.
