Nance is the son of former Cavaliers All-Star Larry Nance and the younger brother of former Cavaliers forward and current New Orleans Pelicans player Larry Nance Jr.

Nance has played in two games for the Cavaliers this season after signing a 10-day contract with the team on January 18. He has also appeared in 29 games with the Cleveland Charge, the Cavaliers’ NBA G-League affiliate.

Nance is averaging 13.6 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.3 blocks this season with the Charge. He posted the first Charge triple-double in over two years on January 10 at Indiana, finishing with 27 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds in 40 minutes.  

Nance went undrafted after one season at The University of North Carolina (2022-23) and four seasons at Northwestern (2018-22), averaging 9.7 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists. His best season was in 2021-22. Nance averaged 14.6 points for Northwestern.

The Cavaliers are 36-17 on the season. They are in second place in the Eastern Conference standings. 

Cleveland won 51 games last season but lost to the New York Knicks in the first round of the 2023 playoffs in five games. It will be fascinating to see how far the Cavaliers go in the 2024 postseason. 

All-Star Donovan Mitchell is having a stellar season for the Cavaliers. He’s averaging 28.4 points, 5.4 rebounds and 6.3 assists this season while shooting 47.3% from the floor, 36.1% from 3 and 86.4% from the free-throw line.

Mitchell is 16th in the NBA in total points and fourth in points per game.
