CLEVELAND CHARGE FINALIZE 2022-23 OPENING DAY ROSTER

CLEVELAND – The Cleveland Charge of the NBA G League have finalized their roster to begin the 2022-23 season.  The team has waived G Djimon Henson, G Remy Martin, and F Chris Walker to set the roster at 12 players, including 10 Charge players and a pair of Cavaliers Two-Way players.

The Charge roster is led by Cleveland Cavaliers Two-Way players F Mamadi Diakite and F Isaiah Mobley.  Four players also spent time in training camp with the Cavs and join the Charge as affiliate players: G Sharife Cooper, G Didi Louzada, F Jamorko Pickett, and F Chandler Vaudrin.  G Nate Hinton also was in training camp with the Cavs this past month, with the Charge acquiring his rights earlier this offseason in a trade.

 

Two players to training camp from their local open tryout: G/F Jermaine Haley and F Gabe Osabuohien.  The lone returning rights player rejoining from last year’s team is G Jordan Allen.  Cleveland took G Sam Merrill with the #1 overall pick in last Saturday’s NBA G League Draft, while also selecting G/F Rashad Vaughn with the 1st pick in the second round.

The team will begin the 2022-23 season at home when they host the Motor City Cruise (Detroit Pistons) at CSU’s Wolstein Center this Friday, November 4th at 7:00 p.m.
