  • RJ Nembhard: Dealt to Raptors 905

    Nembhard was traded from the G League's Windy City Bulls to the Raptors 905 on Friday in exchange for Reggie Perry, Blake Murphy of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    Nembhard hasn't appeared in any G League games since December but will now be on the move. It's not yet clear whether he'll have a role for the Raptors 905 down the stretch.

    Nembhard compiled 18 points (6-9 FG, 4-4 FT), nine assists, three rebounds and two steals in 32 minutes during Friday's 123-107 win over Grand Rapids.

    Nembhard shot 66.7 percent from the floor Friday and scored in double figures for a second consecutive game while also coming within one assist of a double-double. He's now averaging 13.0 points and 4.5 assists in 28.1 minutes per game this year.

  • RJ Nembhard: Scores 12 in win

    Nembhard logged 12 points (3-12 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 5-5 FT), three rebounds, two assists and a steal in 25 minutes during Thursday's 106-96 win over Grand Rapids.

    Nembhard wasn't particularly efficient from the floor during Thursday's matchup, but he was perfect from the charity stripe and was one of two starters to score in double figures for the Cruise. However, he also committed a team-high six turnovers during the comeback victory.

  • RJ Nembhard: Waived by Cavs

    Nembhard was waived by the Cavaliers on Saturday, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.

    Nembhard inked a two-way deal earlier in the week, so it's surprising that he was waived. It's possible he still ends up in the G League.

  • Cavaliers' RJ Nembhard: Gets new two-way deal for 2022-23

    Nembhard, who signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Cavaliers on July 3, missed his only field-goal attempt and was a minus-7 during his two minutes of court time in Wednesday's 105-99 exhibition win over the Hawks.

    Nembhard finished his rookie campaign as one of the Cavaliers' two two-way players and was retained this summer on the same two-way deal. His outlook for playing time at the NBA level hasn't improved much from 2021-22, and he looks on track to spend most of his sophomore season in the G League.

  • Cavaliers' RJ Nembhard: Signs two-way contract

    Nembhard signed a two-way contact with the Cavaliers on Sunday, Michael Scotto of USA Today reports.

    Cleveland upgraded Nembhard from a two-way contract to a standard NBA deal at the end of March, but he was waived Thursday to make room for Moses Brown. However, the undrafted rookie out of TCU will rejoin the organization via another two-way contract. Across 13 appearances this season, Nembhard has averaged 1.2 points, 0.9 assists and 0.5 rebounds in 4.6 minutes per game.

  • RJ Nembhard: Let go by Cavs

    The Cavaliers waived Nembhard on Thursday, Tom Withers of the Associated Press reports.

    Though Cleveland upgraded Nembhard from a two-way contract to a standard NBA deal just one week ago, the undrafted rookie out of TCU will now lose his roster spot entirely. The Cavaliers elected to fill the opening on the 15-man roster by upgrading two-way player Moses Brown to a standard deal, which makes Brown eligible for the play-in tournament and postseason. Nembhard finishes his inaugural NBA campaign with averages of 1.2 points, 0.9 assists and 0.5 rebounds in 4.6 minutes per game over 13 appearances.

  • Cavaliers' RJ Nembhard: Converting to standard deal

    The Cavaliers will convert Nembhard's two-way contract into a standard NBA contract Thursday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Nembhard joined Cleveland on the two-way deal in October and has appeared in 13 NBA games this season. He played two minutes during Wednesday's loss to the Mavericks and is unlikely to see much action down the stretch.

  • Cavaliers' RJ Nembhard: Records double-double

    Nembhard logged 27 points (11-22 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 3-3 FT), 12 rebounds and seven assists across 43 minutes during Tuesday's 116-100 loss to the Westchester Knicks.

    Nembhard alternated between Cleveland's NBA and G League teams multiple times during March. While a member of the Charge roster, he could log double-doubles more regularly.

  • Cavaliers' RJ Nembhard: Rejoins NBA squad

    The Cavaliers recalled Nembhard from the G League's Cleveland Charge on Sunday, Blake Murphy of The Athletic reports.

    With both Caris LeVert (foot) and Rajon Rondo (toe) listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Raptors, Nembhard will rejoin the Cavaliers to restore some depth in the backcourt. Though the rookie will likely dress for the contest, he's not expected to be included in the rotation.

  • Cavaliers' RJ Nembhard: Records 36 points

    Nembhard logged 36 points (12-29 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT), 11 rebounds, eight assists, one steal and one block during Wednesday's 121-113 loss to the Wisconsin Herd.

    Nembhard continues to receive chances to be the primary scorer for an uninspiring Charge team. He averaged 26.3 points on 21.3 field goal attempts across their last three G League games.

  • Cavaliers' RJ Nembhard: Scores 33 points

    Nembhard logged 33 points (12-18 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 3-4 FT), five rebounds, two assists and one steal across 38 minutes during a 119-102 win Saturday against Raptors 905.

    Nembhard logged fewer than three NBA game minutes before being assigned to the Cleveland Charge earlier this month. But across their last two games, he scored 54 points on a 48.8 field goal percentage.

  • Cavaliers' RJ Nembhard: Gets small bench role in return

    Nembhard (COVID-19 health and safety protocols) played 12 minutes in Sunday's 144-99 win over the Raptors, finishing with four points (2-4 FG), six assists and one rebound.

    Upgraded to available prior to Sunday's contest after missing just one game, Nembhard made the most of his abbreviated time on the court. All of the Cavaliers' bench players' minutes were inflated due to the blowout, however, so Nembhard could find himself with a smaller role -- if not left out of the rotation entirely -- in Cleveland's next game Tuesday in New Orleans.

  • Cavaliers' R.J. Nembhard: Placed in protocols

    Nembhard was placed in the league's COVID-19 health and safety protocols Sunday after testing positive for the virus, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Nembhard was one of five Cavaliers to test positive for the virus Sunday, prompting the NBA to postpone the team's game against Atlanta later in the day due to the Cavaliers' inability to have the league-mandated eight players active for the contest. The two-way player has spent most of the season in the G League, but he played three minutes off the Cleveland bench in Saturday's 119-90 win over the Bucks.

  • Cavaliers' R.J. Nembhard: Paces Charge in scoring

    Nembhard logged 23 points (9-15 FG, 3-5 3Pt, 1-4 FT), seven assists, four rebounds and two steals in 30 minutes during Tuesday's G League win over Iowa.

    Nembhard shot 60 percent from the floor in Tuesday's victory and led the Charge on the scoreboard as a result. The 22-year-old has had plenty of playing time in the G League this year and has scored in double figures in all but one of his appearances.

  • Cavaliers' R.J. Nembhard: Posts double-double in win

    Nembhard recorded 10 points (5-12 FG, 0-5 3Pt, 0-1 FT), 10 rebounds, four assists and two blocks in 29 minutes during Saturday's G League win over the Skyforce.

    Nembhard was held to single figures in the scoring column during his last appearance, but he shot 41.7 percent from the floor Saturday. He's now posted four double-doubles in his first five appearances of the season.

    Nembhard produced 28 points (8-21 FG, 2-5 3Pt, 7-9 FT), 11 rebounds, seven assists and a steal in 37 minutes during Friday's G League win over Windy City.

    Nembhard was one of two players to score 25-plus points for the Charge on Friday as he continued his tear to begin the G League season. The 22-year-old has posted double-doubles in each of his first three appearances this year.

    Nembhard logged 14 points (5-14 FG, 0-4 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 13 rebounds, four assists and a steal in 35 minutes during Thursday's G League win over Windy City.

    Nembhard posted a triple-double in his last appearance, and he followed up his performance with a double-double while leading the team on the boards. The 22-year-old has had plenty of work for the Charge to begin the season.

  • Cavaliers' R.J. Nembhard: Records triple-double in loss

    Nembhard posted 17 points (6-18 FG, 2-6 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 11 rebounds, 11 assists and a steal in 39 minutes during Monday's G League loss to the Herd.

    Nembhard had some issues with ball control Monday and led the team with seven turnovers, but he was a strong contributor with a triple-double in the narrow loss. The 22-year-old played just two minutes in his lone appearance with the parent club this year, but he's had a much more significant role in the G League.
