Cavaliers reach an agreement with Joe Smith

The Cavaliers are about to get some much needed frontcourt depth.

Brian Windhorst is reporting that the Cavaliers have come to an agreement on a one-year contract with F Joe Smith.  Smith will sign the contract tomorrow morning when he clears waivers --

"After careful consideration of his options, Joe has decided that the Cavs are the best fit," Smith's agent, Dan Fegan, said.

Smith was contacted by several teams after getting a buyout from the Oklahoma City Thunder on Sunday. He averaged 6.1 points and 4.5 rebounds in 39 games with the Thunder this season. He played 27 games plus the playoffs with the Cavs last season.

Smith has had plenty of rest lately, and should be good to go for the Cavaliers stretch run.
