Cavanaugh destroyed Stockton on Wednesday, finishing the win with 31 points (10-17 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 8-8 FT), 11 rebounds, one assist and one steal.
The two-way player hasn't made much of an impact with the Jazz, but he certainly did a number Wednesday, combining with the other two-way player - Naz Mitrou-Long - to score nearly half of the team's total points. Cavanaugh is averaging 15.9 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.9 turnovers in 28 games with Salt Lake City.
The Jazz had both of their two-way players (Cavanaugh and Naz Mitrou-Long) suit up with four others on the 15-man roster sidelined with injuries. The absences weren't enough to open up playing time for Cavanaugh, however, as coach Quin Snyder ran an 11-man rotation in the narrow win. Cavanaugh has seen action in four games with the Jazz earlier this month but has never played more than three minutes.
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.
