CLEVELAND, Oh. (WTAJ) — Former Penn State star Lamar Stevens will be signing a multi-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to multiple reports.

This season, Stevens has appeared in 37 games, averaging just over 13 minutes, 4.4 points and 2.5 rebounds. Back on March 19, he scored a career high 15 points and nabbed 11 rebounds in a loss to the San Antonio Spurs.

While at Penn State, Stevens finished second in school history in points scored with 2,207 total points. He also finished top five in rebounds and blocks.

In his last outing with the Cavs, Stevens played 17 minutes, scoring four points on three shot attempts against the New Orleans Pelicans.
