Two Cleveland Cavaliers are headed to the D-League.
Per two releases sent out today, both Sasha Kaun and Jordan McRae have been assigned to the Canton Charge. The Charge are currently in the D-League's playoffs Eastern Conference Finals and next play on Tuesday at 7 p.m. against the Sioux Falls Skyforce.
Neither Kaun or McRae have played for the Charge this season. As pointed out by Upside and Motor's Chris Reichert, sending Kaun and McRae down to Canton is a bit more complicated than it might seem on paper.
