The Cleveland Cavaliers are set to sign center Sasha Kaun on a two-year deal, according to sources. The second year will be a player option.

Kaun and his future at Cavs

The 30-year-old center was drafted in the second round by the Cavs in 2008.

But the 7-footer featured for CSKA Moscow for the past seven years after playing for Kansas. He won the NCAA Championship with the Kansas Jayhawks in 2008. In 30 Euroleague games last season, Kaun averaged 9.9 points and 4.5 rebounds.

The 7-footer center has a history with Cavaliers’ headcoach David Blatt, and perhaps that’s the reason he will be featuring in their roster.

Kaun played in the Russian national team under Blatt. Russia won a bronze medal in London Olympic in 2012.

Fellow Russian Timofey Mozgov is going to be the starting center for the Cavs in the coming season. Kevin Love too shall start with Mozgov. Sasha Kaun comes in the roster as his back-up. Anderson Varejao will be back after missing most of the last season with a torn Achilles.

Cavs front court is crowded and has acquired a lot of depth this summer, due to prompt actions taken by general manager David Griffin. Its hard to find out how the Russian would fit in the team.
