Former Maryland basketball guard Rasheed Sulaimon will work out with the Cleveland Cavaliers Tuesday, according to Michael Scotto.

Sulaimon averaged 11.3 points, 3.5 assists and 1.2 steals per game in his only season at Maryland after transferring from Duke for his senior year. He was as the team's best defender on the perimeter and also served as the Terps' primary backup ball-handler for much of the season.

The Cavaliers are in an interesting spot at shooting guard. J.R. Smith, the team's starter in 2015-16, is not guaranteed to be there next season. Besides Smith, they have Iman Shumpert, who's earning almost $9 this season and is on the books for three more seasons, and reserve guard Jordan MacRae, who has a team option for 2015-16.

The NBA Draft takes place on June 23. Sulaimon isn't expected to hear his name called, but should probably receive an invite to training camp somewhere.
