CLEVELAND (AP) -The Cavaliers signed center Lorenzen Wright on Friday to help offset the loss up front of forward Joe Smith.
Cleveland has been looking for some frontcourt size since Smith was traded as part of the three-team deal with Memphis and Milwaukee that brought guard Mo Williams to Cleveland.
The 6-foot-11, 255-pound Wright played 12 games for Atlanta and five for Sacramento last season, averaging less than a point and 2.1 rebounds.
Wright has averaged 8.1 points 6.5 rebounds in 761 career games. He has also appeared in 15 postseason games. The 33-year-old will also give the Cavaliers a backup for centers Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Ben Wallace.
