  • Malik Newman: Plays nine minutes in G League

    Newman (calf) played nine minutes in Sunday's G League win over Fort Wayne.

    Newman didn't make his lone shot of the evening, a three-pointer that didn't fall but the important thing is that he was able to return from the calf injury that kept him out earlier in the week. He also added two rebounds and an assist.

The 23-year-old's excelled in for Cleveland's G League affiliate this season, carrying season-long averages of 17.4 points, 4.1 assists and 3.4 rebounds in 30.9 minutes per game. Look for Newman to factor in alongside Matthew Dellavedova as the teams' primary backups to Darius Garland for the duration of his contract.

    Newman scored 24 points (9-19 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and added an assist and a block during Saturday's G League loss to Capital City.

    It was an odd game for Newman, statistically speaking. He led the team with nine field goals but was 0-for-4 from beyond the arc and contributed virtually nothing else in terms of other stats. He'll look for a more even performance Friday against Grand Rapids.

  • Cavaliers' Malik Newman: Signs camp deal with Cavs

    Newman has agreed to a training camp contract with the Cavaliers, Sam Amico of reports.

    Newman spent the latter half of the 2018-19 season with the Cavaliers' G League affiliate, the Canton Charge. There, he averaged 12.0 points and 3.0 rebounds in 25 appearances. He'll look to impress the Cavaliers' coaching staff enough to land a spot on the final roster, but chances are, he'll play for the Charge again in 2019-20.

  • Cavaliers' Malik Newman: Scores game-high 33 points in win

    Newman went off for 33 points (11-17 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 7-9 FT), four rebounds, two steals and an assist across 31 minutes in the Cavaliers' 98-96 overtime win over the Kings on Friday in a Las Vegas Summer League consolation game.

    Newman had a huge night for Cleveland in the team's overtime victory, leading the Cavs with three points in overtime to secure a close win. Despite the stellar effort, Newman is unlikely to make the Cavaliers' roster this season and will presumably return to the G League, where he spent most of 2018.

  • Cavaliers' Malik Newman: Paces second unit

    Newman turned in 15 points (4-10 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 4-4 FT), three assists, and two rebounds across 19 minutes during the Cavaliers' 99-78 loss to the Pelicans in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday.

    The second-year guard's scoring total led the bench and checked in second for the night on the Cavaliers. Newman averaged 11.0 points on 44.8 percent shooting in a bench role with both Canton and Sioux Falls in the G League last season, which shapes up as his most likely destination again in the coming campaign.

    Newman tallied 19 points (7-13 FG, 1-5 3Pt, 4-5 FT), two assists and a steal in the 116-114 win over Raptors 905 on Thursday.

    Since joining Canton in late January, Newman is averaging 9.7 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.4 through 20 games. His minutes per game is higher than when he played with Sioux Falls (22.7 to 17.7), but he's still not a major enough factor offensively to count on routinely when it comes to fantasy.
