According to Yahoo's Marc Spears, the Cleveland Cavaliers and Toronto Raptors are interested in signing 6'1" point guard Will Cherry.

Cherry played with the Cavs during the Las Vegas Summer League. In five games, he averaged 25.2 minutes, 12.8 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists per game. He shot 52% from the floor, but just 23.5% on his 17 three-point attempts.

After going undrafted in 2013, Cherry played last season in the D-League with the Canton Charge. In 18 games with the Charge, he averaged 11.6 points and 4.5 assists per game. Prior to that, Cherry spent four years at the University of Montana where he was named to the All-Big Sky first team three times, and he was twice named Big Sky Defensive Player of the Year.

The only pure point guards currently on the Cavs' roster are Kyrie Irving and the recently-acquired John Lucas III (who may not stick around for long). Dion Waiters, Matthew Dellavedova, and LeBron James can all handle the ball, but given Irving's injury history, there is no doubt that they need to add another point guard.
