After spending 29 games with the Oklahoma City Blue this season, Vincent Edwards was traded to the Canton Charge today in exchange for former Iowa Hawkeye, Tyler Cook, and some draft picks.

It appears that Edwards will start with the Charge and will have an opportunity to join the Cleveland Cavaliers active roster soon.

There are also reports going around that former Michigan head coach, Jon Beilein, may step down as coach of the Cavaliers during the All-Star break but nothing has been confirmed at this moment in time.

Vincent has played well this season, starting in 13 of the 29 games he has appeared in and was averaging 11 points, 5.3 rebounds, 1.8 assists while playing 25.9 minutes per game. He is also shooting 40% from three-point range and 47% from the field overall.

Cleveland has struggled mightily in Beilein’s first year as head coach going just 14-40 with the second half of the season coming up.

At 6’8, and the ability to shoot it from deep, Edwards could get playing this at the 4 with the only Cavs forwards getting significant playing time this year being Cedi Osman, Larry Nnance Jr., and Alfonzo McKinnie.

So far in his career he has appeared in only two NBA games, both of which were as a member of the Houston Rockets during the 2018-19 season.

Hopefully, Boilermaker fans will get to see Vincent suit up for Cleveland and get some solid minutes down the stretch this season. Good luck Vince, Boiler Up!
