    The Cavs recently had a trade and had an open roster spot. They also had another 10 day contract (Marques Bolden) expire, opening 2 spots for 2-way players so JP was one of the two called up. They can only sign two consecutive 10 day contracts before they are required to sign them for the rest of the season.

    He's not a rookie this season, so nice money for a 10 day stretch.

    Their season is in the toilet. They are now working on player development and project as a high chance for getting the number one draft pick.

    No reason not to throw JP out there and see how he performs. But they have nothing but young backcourt players that project like he does or better. I doubt they have a long term plan at this point but we'll see what his opportunities are. However, I really don't like their last two first round picks. Both talented, but ball hogs for point guards, who don't know how to set up their team or play great defense.

    Cavs just traded Brandon Knight and John Henson for Andre Drummond. So, one less guard. Although Drummond's style is not the hot thing in today's NBA, Cavs still picked up a top performer at a good price. It'll be interesting to see if he stays around next season or tries to see if anyone else will invest in him like Cleveland will.

    Unless they sign him to guaranteed deal, as a 2 way player he is only allowed to be up so many days right? Not even games but just days where they practice I think?

    Too bad he wasn't there last night. The Cavs lost by 41 to the Clippers. That's the kind of game where JP might have played 25 minutes.

    2 10 day contracts in a row or for the whole year?

    Per year and after those two they are free agents to sign with anyone if the team does not guarantee their contract for the remainder of the year. The Cavs recently went through this with Alfonso McKinnie. They waived him and eventually signed him back at a long term deal. I would be surprised if this is what they do with JP, however as it appears they are using their 2-way players mostly to fill roster spots.

    JP got into the game last night - he played 1 minute but had no stats other than that. He has now played in 3 NBA games.
