Cleveland extended his streak of double-digit scoring to 11 games in the win and snagged double-digit rebounds for the ninth time this season en route to his eighth double-double. He has garnered only 14 minutes of NBA action this season but has fared well in the G League, posting per-game averages of 15.1 points, 7.7 rebounds and 1.5 steals.
Cleveland was recalled from the G League to participate in Tuesday's practice with the Mavericks, Bobby Karalla of the Mavericks' official site reports.

Cleveland has come alive over the last three games, averaging 18.0 points per contest on 57.6 percent shooting from the field. He plays bigger than his 6-foot-5 frame implies, averaging 6.9 rebounds and 1.3 blocks through seven games this season. Cleveland's all-around game could eventually earn him a longer look in the NBA, though the Mavericks' strong start and good health make it unlikely that such a chance will come soon.
Cleveland racked up 23 points (9-13 FG, 1-2 3PT, 2-3 FT) along with seven rebounds and three blocks in Wednesday's loss to Stockton.
After posting a goose egg in his last contest, Cleveland erupted for his best game of the season, eclipsing his previous top scoring effort by 10 points. It was a nice bounceback game for the 25-year-old, but he'll need to show prolonged success in order to have his two-way contract converted to a promotion to the Mavericks.
Cleveland is yet to make an appearance through four regular season games in 2019-20.
Cleveland averaged 4.8 points (23.8 FG, 20.0 3Pt, 72.2 FT), 2.6 rebounds, 0.6 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 0.2 threes in 10.2 minutes per game through five preseason contests. However, he hasn't seen any action thus far in the regular season. Unless his two-way deal gets converted into a standard contract at some point, Cleveland will likely remain irrelevant across most fantasy formats.
Cleveland will ink a two-way contract with the Mavericks, Tim Cato of The Athletic reports.
Cleveland put on an impressive display in Summer League, averaging 16 points, 4.8 rebounds, 1.8 assists, 2.4 steals and one block per game over five contests. The showing was enough to earn him a deal that could result in a spot on the Mavs' Opening Night roster with a strong training camp.
Cleveland poured in 14 points (6-9 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 1-4 FT) and added four rebounds, one assist, three steals and one block across 28 minutes during the Mavericks' 105-101 loss to the Kings in a Las Vegas Summer League game Monday.
Cleveland came into Monday's contest with a team-leading 17.5 points (on 57.0 percent shooting) over the Mavericks' first two summer league contests, and he was even sharper Monday. The 25-year-old guard was outplayed by backcourt mate Cameron Payne versus the Kings, but he's undoubtedly made a formidable impression in just three games of play in the desert.
Cleveland finished with 22 points (7-12 FG, 1-4 3Pt, 7-8 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 25 minutes during the Mavericks' 96-92 win over the Nets in a Las Vegas Summer League game Friday.
Cleveland enjoyed a solid season with the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G League last season, averaging 11.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.6 steals across 26.5 minutes per contest. The 25-year-old guard's scoring tally led the Mavericks on Friday and offered a glimpse of his solid shooting skills. He'll look to continue making an impression in upcoming Las Vegas contests in an effort to secure an invite to training camp.
Cleveland posted 16 points (5-10 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 3-6 FT), seven rebounds, two steals and one assists in the 107-92 win over the Herd on Wednesday.
That followed a 23-point outing Sunday off the bench, which likely was the reason the forward factored into the starting rotation Wednesday. Rarely used throughout the 2017-18 season, Cleveland has thrived in his role with Santa Cruz this campaign and figures to be a major rotational piece for the roster throughout the conclusion of the season.
Cleveland tallied 26 points (8-12 FG, 4-5 3Pt, 6-6 FT), 10 rebounds, three blocks and two steals in 31 minutes Wednesday in Santa Cruz's 109-99 loss to Grand Rapids.
It's the first 20-10 game at the G League level for Cleveland, whose scoring total led the way for Santa Cruz. Cleveland is averaging 11.3 points, 5.1 boards, 2.1 assists and 1.7 steals in 27.2 minutes per game across 32 outings this season.
Cleveland did not play in Santa Cruz's 95-88 win over Stockton on Wednesday due to a leg injury.
Cleveland has had a long history with injury problems throughout his G League career, which is a shame considering there is definitely something to this second-year guard. In 28 games played for Santa Cruz this year, Cleveland is averaging 11 points a game on 46.1 percent shooting, 5.1 rebounds per game, and a smattering of assists, steals and blocks to round out a solid stat sheet. That being said, Cleveland can't impress anyone if he can't get on the court. If Cleveland can ever overcome his injury bug there's potential for serious development, but the clock is ticking and Cleveland's body might not be able to keep up.
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.
The Bulls claimed Cleveland off waivers Monday, Shams Charania of Yahoo reports.
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.
