After the Cavs were unable to get into the draft last night, the team has turned to undrafted free agents for their summer league roster. T.J. Williams, a 22-year-old point guard, is the first addition, per CBS’ Matt Norlander. Williams also retweeted Norlander’s tweet, indicating that he has in fact signed.

Williams took over point guard duties at Northeastern for the first time last season. As a senior, he averaged 21.4 points and 5.3 assists while shooting 46.3 percent from the field and 33.3 percent from three. Last season was the first time he had every averaged double figures in his college career.

At 6’3” and 205 pounds, he’s significantly bigger that Kay Felder, the other point guard prospect currently on the Cavs’ roster. Felder is also expected to play for Cleveland this summer and was on the roster last year, so Williams will likely back him up. Williams seems like a prime candidate to end up on the Canton Charge in some capacity, particularly if plays well in Las Vegas.
