CLEVELAND — The Cavaliers have signed well-traveled guard Nik Stauskas, who was traded three times and released last week, even for the remaining part of the growing season.

Stauskas was temporarily together with the Cavs, who obtained him from the Portland Trail Blazers in the deal to get forward Rodney Hood. He never appeared at a game before Cleveland sent him two weeks after into this Houston Rockets, who promptly traded Stauskas at the deadline into Indiana. Even the Indiana Pacers subsequently summoned the 25-year-old, allowing the rebuilding Cavs to scoop up him.

Stauskas averaged 6.1 points, 1.8 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 44 games as a book for the trailblazers. He also has played for Brooklyn, Philadelphia and Sacramento, which selected him with the No. 8 overall pick in 2014.

Cleveland, that recently welcomed back All-Star forward Kevin Love following foot surgery, is 11-45 going into Monday’s game against the New York Knicks.
