Scott, 25, is 6-foot-8 and had been playing for the Cleveland Charge of the G League, averaging 14.0 points and 6.1 rebounds in 10 appearances. Scott is the Charge’s first call-up of the season.

He went undrafted out of Cincinnati in 2020, spending last season with the G League’s Salt Lake City Stars. He played for the Cavs’ summer team in Las Vegas this past offseason before signing on with the Charge.

The Cavs (19-12) are considerably shorthanded heading into Wednesday’s road game vs. the Celtics, following a series of players entering health and safety protocols. As it stands, they have won six straight.

Cleveland has now added three players this week via the hardship exception, with Scott joining Luke Kornet and Justin Anderson,” wrote Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors. “The Cavs currently have eight players in the health and safety protocols, so they’re eligible to sign a few more replacement players if they so choose.”
