Cleveland was waived by the Bulls on Saturday.
Cleveland saw action in just one of Chicago's preseason contests, getting less than two minutes of run. It's possible the Bulls opt to keep his talents in the organization by signing him to the Windy City Bulls, the organizations' G-League affiliate.
Cleveland was waived by the Hawks as a consequence of the Carmelo Anthony/Dennis Schroder deal last week, but he was a fringe roster player and likely wasn't going to be in the franchise's long-term plans. He'll land on his feet in Chicago, where he'll join the Bulls for training camp in hopes of earning a partial or fully guaranteed deal.
Cleveland will be waived by the Hawks, Chris Vivlamore of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Cleveland, for financial reasons, will be a casualty of the trade that sent Dennis Schroder to the Thunder for Carmelo Anthony and a protected 2022 first-round pick. As a result of injuries, Cleveland appeared in just 24 total games last season between the NBA and the G-League.
Cleveland posted 11 points (4-10 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, two assists and two steals across 28 minutes in Thursday's 95-69 loss to the Trail Blazers.
It's been a circuitous route for Cleveland, who spent time with the Warriors and the Mavericks before finally landing with the Hawks. He had an ankle injury last season that just wouldn't clear up, and it severely limited his ability to play. He did see some playing time in Atlanta last season but was largely a non-factor. The ankle issue looks to be gone now and Cleveland has tried to reconstruct his game in the Summer League with varied success.
Cleveland was basically a non-factor all year long during his rookie season as his highest scoring total was only five points. The Southeast Missouri State product will be a free agent this summer although it would not be a surprise if he starts next year off in the G League.
