The Cleveland Cavaliers will be adding Dionte Christmas to their training camp roster. Christmas is a shooting guard. According to the league sources, Cavs have added him as training camp invite.

Christmas will undergo a physical test on Saturday. If he passes that, the Cavs will officially sign a one-year non-guaranteed deal with him. Christmas has featured in 31 games in his NBA career for the Phoenix Suns in 2013-14. The 29-year-old spent most of his times overseas. Christmas went undrafted out of Temple University in 2009.

The addition of Christmas means the Cavs will have to waive a player from their current 20-men roster. The team will cut Mike Dunigan, according to sources. Christmas was seen in the Cavs locker room during the team’s 115-114 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers.
