Mooney was waived by the Cavaliers on Saturday, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports. Mooney was on a two-way deal, so there's a good chance he sees G League action with the Canton Charge.
Mooney totaled 13 points (4-11 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 1-2 FT), two rebounds, three assists, and two steals in Sunday's G League win over Fort Wayne. Mooney put up a pretty standard game by his standards. He is averaging 13.1 points per game with 3.7 rebounds, and five assists across 39 G League contests this season.
Mooney scored 16 points, (6-6 FG, 4-4 3Pt, 0-0 FT) and added three rebounds, eight assists and four steals in Friday's G League win over Windy City. Mooney couldn't miss while contributing 29 minutes off the bench. He also led Canton in assists and steals on the evening.
Mooney will sign a two-way contract with the Cavaliers, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports. The undrafted rookie out of Texas Tech has averaged 12.5 points and 4.8 assists across 24 games with the G League's Memphis Hustle this season. His two-way deal allows him to spend up to 45 days at the NBA level, but Mooney is likely to see most of his action with the Cavs' G League affiliate, the Canton Charge.
Mooney tallied 28 points (10-13 FG, 7-9 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three assists, two steals and one rebound across 28 minutes of G League action during Monday's 110-107 loss to Agua Caliente. It was Mooney's best shooting performance of the season, hitting 76.9 percent of his field goals, including a 7-for-9 barrage from beyond the arc for a season-high 28 points. The 22-year-old had been averaging 11.0 points per game over his past five contests prior to Monday's outburst. His highly-efficient performance was not enough, though, as his teammates shot a combined 5-for-26 from deep and dropped their fourth game of the season. Mooney won't add much value outside of scoring, but he'll continue to see high usage as one of the Hustle's best options from long range.
