  • Zizic signed a two-year contract Tuesday with Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv, EuroLeague.net reports. Zizic was initially believed to be headed to Spanish club Real Madrid after the Cavaliers cleared him to explore opportunities overseas earlier this summer, but he'll instead flee the NBA for Israel. Drafted by the Celtics in the first round of the 2016 NBA Draft, Zizic was dealt to the Cavaliers the following summer as part of the Kyrie Irving blockbuster trade. He spent the past three seasons in Cleveland, averaging 6.0 points and 3.9 rebounds in 13.4 minutes per game over 113 games.

  • Zizic came to terms on a contract Wednesday with Spanish club Real Madrid, Sam Amico of SI.com reports. Zizic isn't scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent until after the 2019-20 season officially concludes, but because the Cavaliers aren't one of the 22 teams heading to Orlando for the resumption of the campaign, the 23-year-old was allowed to field offers outside of the league. While the monetary terms of his deal with Real Madrid aren't known, it's safe to say that Zizic will be in store for a more lucrative contract that he would have fetched in the NBA after he frequently found himself outside of the rotation for a 19-46 Cavaliers squad. At 23 years old, Zizic certainly has time to revisit a return to North America at a later date, though as a traditional back-to-basket center who struggles to block shots and lacks three-point range, he's a less-than-ideal fit in the modern NBA.

  • Zizic (illness) played nine minutes off the bench in Saturday's 124-105 loss to the Heat, finishing with seven points (3-3 FG, 1-1 FT) and one steal. Zizic was available in Friday's 113-108 win over the Wizards, but it took an absence from Kevin Love (Achilles) in the second half of the back-to-back set Saturday in order for the 23-year-old to pick up minutes. The appearance was Zizic's first since Jan. 11, as he had been sidelined nearly a month and a half while recovering from a vestibular condition.

  • Zizic (illness) dressed for Friday's 113-108 win over the Wizards but didn't see the floor in a coach's decision. Zizic was cleared to play in the Cavaliers' first game out of the All-Star break after being sidelined with a vestibular condition, but there was no playing time available for him with the team's top four big men (Andre Drummond, Kevin Love, Tristan Thompson and Larry Nance) absorbing all the minutes in the frontcourt. Considering Love had recently dealt with Achilles soreness, there's a good chance he sits Saturday in Miami for the second half of the back-to-back set. If that's the case, Zizic could step back into coach J.B. Bickerstaff's rotation.

  • Zizic (illness) is probable for Friday's contest against Washington, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports. It appears as though Zizic will finally return to the court Friday following a battle with a vestibular condition. The center hasn't played since logging 10 minutes of action against Denver on Jan. 11.
