Shooting guard Chris LeVert is set to make his debut with the Cleveland Cavaliers Wednesday night against the San Antonio Spurs.

The Cavs acquired LeVert and a second-round pick from the Indiana Pacers on Sunday, February 6, 2022, in exchange for the injured guard Ricky Rubio and a package of three draft picks.

The 27-year-old LeVert practiced with the Cavs on Tuesday as the team prepared to play the Spurs.

LeVert expressed his excitement and looked forward to playing with his new teammates.

“I’ve felt a lot of love over the last couple of days,” he said. “I’m very blessed to be here. I just can’t wait to get started. I’m super excited. They are a young team with a lot of energy. I feel I’m going to thrive.”

The Cavs currently sit in fourth place in the Eastern Conference.

Cavs’ head coach John-Blair Bickerstaff said that the team is getting more dynamic, dangerous, and LeVert is what the team needs.

“(LeVert has the) ability to put the ball on the floor and create,” Bickerstaff said. “He will help everybody. He’s an added weapon. (Opposing teams) will have to pick their poison. It makes us more dynamic and more dangerous as a basketball team. He’s a long, rangy defender as well.”
