The Cavaliers are signing guard/forward Nate Hinton to an Exhibit 10 training camp contract, per JD Shaw of Hoops Rumors.
Hinton was recently acquired by the Cleveland Charge in a G League trade with the Fort Wayne Mad Ants for the rights to center Norvel Pelle and the Charge’s second-round pick in the 2023 G League Draft.
Hinton, 23, is 6-foot-5 and signed with the Pacers last September. He was waived a month later, but returned to Indiana on a 10-day contract in December. He then signed a two-way deal with the Pacers on April 7.
He appeared in two NBA games last season, and 21 with the Mavericks the year before that as a rookie. He averaged 8.7 points and 5.6 rebounds with the Mad Ants, the Pacers’ G League affiliate.
Exhibit 10 contracts count toward a team’s offseason roster limit of 20, but not toward the regular roster unless the player receives a standard deal.
Hinton averaged 18.1 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.2 steals in the G League last season, shooting 46% from the floor and 38% from deep.
