Undrafted forward JaCorey Williams has agreed to a training camp deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to a report from Dave McMenamin of ESPN.

Williams is 6-foot-8 and the reigning Conference USA Player of the Year at Middle Tennessee State, after spending his first three college seasons at Arkansas.

He averaged 17.3 points and 7.3 rebounds as a senior with the Blue Raiders last year, before joining the Golden State Warriors' summer team in July.

"The Cavs hope to develop him in the G-League with the Canton Charge," McMenamin wrote of Williams. "He will likely receive an Exhibit 10 deal, giving the Cavs a chance to convert the contract to one of their two two-way slots should he impress."

The addition of Williams will not impact the pursuit of veteran guard Dwyane Wade, McMenanin added, citing a source.
