ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Alex Kirk has been signed by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Terms of his deal were not disclosed.
“It’s a really good situation for me,” said Kirk. “I’m definitely getting to a level I wanted to get when I left UNM and it’s just really important to me that I am able to follow my dream of playing in the NBA. It’s exciting news for me and my family.”
Kirk was not selected in the 2014 NBA Draft but, managed to get a spot on the Cleveland Cavaliers NBA Summer League team where he averaged over five points and three and a half rebounds in fifteen minutes per game. Size may have helped the cause of the seven foot center who is also known for being a good defender.
