Cleveland Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr. has agreed to a four-year, $44.8 million contract extension.

Nance was traded to the Cavaliers from the Lakers last season. 

His dad played for the Cavaliers in the 80s and 90s.

“I'm actually at a loss for words right now,” said Nance. “To continue playing basketball for a franchise I grew up with and watched as my father starred here is truly a blessing. I'm extremely happy to be a Cavalier and I can now begin to establish my own long-term legacy in this community. I want to thank Dan, Koby and our coaching staff for believing in me and my potential. This is truly a dream come true.”

Nance has averaged 7.1 points and 3.9 rebounds per game in his career.
