The Cleveland Cavaliers will be signing four-year veteran Denzel Valentine to a two-year deal, according to reports. The signing was first reported by cleveland.com Cavaliers beat reporter Chris Fedor.

Valentine, who turns 28 in mid-November, will likely be depth on the wing for the Cavaliers, which has been one of the major needs throughout this offseason. He will be battling with veteran Cedi Osman, young sharpshooter Dylan Windler, and athletic combo-forward Larry Stevens for minutes behind young Cavs starter Issac Okoro.

In four seasons with the Chicago Bulls, the Michigan State graduate averaged 7.5 points per game, 3.5 rebounds per game, and two assists per game. He saw his most minutes in 2017-18, where he 10.2 points, 5.1 rebounds, and 3.2 assists in 27.2 minutes per game.

The Cavaliers, along with the rest of the NBA, will open training camp on September 28th.
