Cavanaugh tallied 35 points, 11 rebounds and two assists in 37 minutes during Tuesday's game against the Legends.
Cavanaugh is currently playing on a two-way contract with the Jazz and will likely be called up intermittently throughout the season, especially if he continues to have outings like Tuesday's. For now, the former George Washington standout seems to be a stronghold in the Stars' starting lineup.
Cavanaugh appeared in 39 games with the Hawks last season, shooting 36.0 percent from three and averaging 4.7 points and 3.3 rebounds across 13.3 minutes. The George Washington product also spent 11 games in the G-League, where he averaged 14.5 points and 7.3 rebounds in 23.6 minutes. In joining the Jazz on a two-way deal, he'll spend most of the 2018-19 campaign with the organization's G-League affiliate, the Salt Lake City Stars. Cavanaugh, per the nature of two-way deals, can spend up to 45 days at the NBA level as well.
Cavanaugh was waived by the Hawks on Friday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.
As part of his guaranteed contract, Cavanaugh was due $450,000 on Tuesday, so the Hawks will let him go to avoid that cost. As a result, Cavanaugh will be an unrestricted free agent in need of a new NBA home. The rookie out of George Washington ended up having a sizable role with a rebuilding Atlanta team last season, appearing in 39 games and averaging 4.7 points and 3.3 rebounds. His career-high came in November against the Pelicans, when he shot 6-of-7 from the field en route to scoring 16 points.
Cavanaugh spent a majority of the season in the G League but was somewhat productive off the bench for the Hawks this year. His highest scoring game came on Nov. 13 at New Orleans in which he erupted for 16 points on 6-of-7 shooting. It's likely, given his time in the NBA this year, that Cavanaugh should be able to land a two way contract with an NBA squad this off-season.
Cavanaugh was recalled from the G-League's Erie BayHawks on Saturday, Michael Cunningham of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Cavanaugh will presumably remain with Atlanta for the remainder of the regular season, as the BayHawks were eliminated from the playoffs Friday night. He's seen spotty run as of late, averaging 3.8 points and 3.1 rebounds in 11.9 minutes since March 13.
