1 Min Read

The Cleveland Cavaliers’ quiet offseason made some noise on Friday with the signing of free agent forward Jarell Martin to a one-year deal.

The 25-year-old Martin was selected in the first round of the 2015 NBA Draft out of Louisiana State University by the Memphis Grizzlies, the 25th player taken overall. During his four-year career in the league, he spent the first three seasons with the Grizzlies before being traded in July 2018 to the Orlando Magic.

While Martin has played in 184 NBA games, he’s also seen plenty of time in the G League. In his NBA contests, he’s started 40, with 36 coming during the 2017-18 season and has averaged 5.4 points and 3.5 rebounds per game.
