Hinton finished with 20 points (9-14 FG, 2-6 3Pt), six rebounds, four assists and three steals across 34 minutes in Sunday's 121-106 win over the Gold.
Hinton averaged 8.7 points per game across 14 appearances for Fort Wayne during the 2021-22 season, and he was putting up similar numbers this season until breaking out Sunday. Given that Hinton played 30-plus minutes and didn't reach the 10-point mark in any of his previous three contests, all signs point to this game being an outlier for Hinton rather than the expected norm going forward....

Nate Hinton: Waived by Cavs
Hinton was waived by Cleveland on Saturday, Kelsey Russo of The Athletic reports.
Hinton did not figure to have a great chance at making the Cavs' final roster, so this news is not surprising. He appeared in 21 NBA games as a rookie in Dallas in the 2020-21 season before spending the majority of last season in the G League. He is now set to look for a new opportunity.... See More ...

Cavaliers' Nate Hinton: Inks Exhibit 10 deal
The Cavaliers signed Hinton to an Exhibit 10 deal Monday, Sam Amico of FortyEightMinutes.com reports.
Hinton appeared in 21 NBA games with Dallas as a rookie during the 2020-21 season and played in two contests with the Pacers last year, but he never garnered a substantial role. However, he did light it up while playing for the Fort Wayne Mad Ants in the G League during the 2021-22 campaign. The third-year forward averaged 18.1 points, 9.0 rebounds and 2.2 steals while shooting 45.9 percent from the field and 38.0 percent from three as a sophomore. Hinton will likely be a longshot to make the Cavaliers' initial roster, but he could land a two-way deal with a strong training camp.... See More ... See Less

Hinton, who went undrafted out of Houston in 2020, appeared in 21 games for the Mavericks in 2020-21 and two for the Pacers earlier this season when the team required COVID-19-related reinforcements.
