Cavaliers' Sam Merrill: Prolific from outside
Merrill recorded 27 points (9-13 FG, 8-11 3Pt, 1-1 FT), two rebounds, two assists and one steal in 21 minutes during Monday's 100-77 Summer League win over the Grizzlies.
Merrill got hot from deep and led the Cavaliers in scoring during Monday's win. The 27-year-old guard made just five appearances for Cleveland last season but should continue to feature during Summer League.... See More ... See Less
Cavaliers' Sam Merrill: Posts career-high 17 points
Merrill accumulated 17 points (6-12 FG, 3-9 3Pt, 2-2 FT), four rebounds, one assist and three steals across 26 minutes during Sunday's 106-95 loss to the Hornets.
With the Cavaliers locked into the No. 4 seed, Darius Garland and Donovan Mitchell didn't play. That opened the door for Merrill, who topped double digits for the first time in two seasons. The Utah State product had only played in four games this season, but he led Cleveland in points due largely to three made triples. Merrill will likely return to obscurity as the Cavaliers take on the Knicks in the first round of the playoffs.... See More ... See Less

Cavaliers' Sam Merrill: Inks multi-year deal with Cleveland
The Cavaliers are expected to sign Merrill to a multi-year contract Tuesday, Chris Fedor of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.
Merrill's 10-day contract expired Monday, and he made just one four-minute appearance across five games during his initial stint with the team. Despite his limited playing time, Merrill still earned a sizable promotion, and while the parameters of the deal haven't been disclosed, Evan Dammarell of FearTheSword.com expects the Utah State product's contract to be similar to the three-year deals Lamar Stevens and Dean Wade received from Cleveland over the last two years....

Sam Merrill: Hits open market
Merrill became a free agent Monday after his 10-day contract with the Cavaliers expired, Keith Smith of Spotrac.com reports.
Merrill is eligible to re-sign with Cleveland on a second 10-day deal, but it's unclear if he'll be retained after he made one four-minute appearance across the team's five games during his initial week-and-a-half-long stint with the team. If the Cavaliers choose not to bring him back on another 10-day pact, Merrill will likely rejoin the team's G League affiliate, the Cleveland Charge.... See More ... See Less

Merrill racked up 32 points (10-17 FG, 10-14 3Pt, 1-2 FT), four rebounds, two assists and two steals across 36 minutes in Wednesday's win over the Swarm.

Merrill has had some very good games for the Charge this season, but this one won't fall into that category.

The first overall pick of the 2022 G League Draft made all of his damage from beyond the arc, and he was mostly playing as a perimeter threat in this game. Merrill was far from efficient, but he hasn't had those issues so far in the G League, and there's a chance this was nothing but a subpar effort from him. He is shooting 45.2 percent from the field and 42.6 percent from three-point range on the season.... See More ... See Less
Sam Merrill: Scores 11 off bench Wednesday
Merrill had 11 points (4-8 FG, 3-6 3Pt), two assists and a steal across 20 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's win over the Mad Ants.
Merrill was the first overall pick in the 2022 G League Draft, but he hasn't done too much for the Charge, and his contributions have been scarce. Even though he's started from time to time, Merril has been mainly coming off the bench, but he's been producing enough to believe he might be in line for a more significant role. He's averaging 15.1 points per game while shooting 42 percent from the field, but he needs to improve his long-range shooting since he's connecting on just 37.6 percent of his attempts from beyond the arc....
