Cavs News: Cavaliers Sign Rookie Guard Stephen Holt


Adding another guard to their backcourt, the Cleveland Cavaliers announced on Wednesday the signing of rookie free agent guard Stephen Holt, who was playing professionally in Germany.

Holt was undrafted in June’s NBA draft, but played for the Atlanta Hawks’ Las Vegas summer league squad, averaging 8.6 points and two assists per game in five contests—three of which were starts. Soon after, he was invited to both the Hawks and the Memphis Grizzlies’ training camps, but chose instead to head overseas to begin his pro career.

Holt won All-West Coast Conference honors last season at St. Mary’s after averaging 15.2 points and just under four assists. Over the course of his four seasons with the Gaels, Holt averaged 10.8 points and 2.4 assists.

The signing was finalized over the weekend, and was confirmed by now teammate Matthew Dellavedova via Twitter.
