Cavs Legion Send 2020 Second-Round Pick to Raptors Uprising Gaming
Cavs Legion GC, the NBA 2K League affiliate of the Cleveland Cavaliers, has acquired Freddy Mendoza “DOZA” from Raptors Uprising Gaming in exchange for a 2020 second-round pick, Head Coach Austin Peterson announced today.
A native of Arlington, Virginia, “DOZA” averaged 12 points, eight assists and a steal per game at the point guard position for Raptors Uprising last season. Originally drafted in 2018 by Pistons GT, Mendoza was then selected by Raptors Uprising in the first round (15th overall) of the 2019 NBA 2K League draft after not being retained by the Pistons.
Mendoza already has a winning history in Cleveland with NBA 2K. Before the start of the inaugural season of the NBA 2K League in the winter of 2018, Mendoza traveled from his hometown in Virginia to participate in, and ultimately win, the first Cavs Legion NBA 2K tournament. Check out a recap of that tournament HERE.
“We are very excited to add DOZA to our roster,” said Head Coach Austin Peterson. “I think his experience and expertise fit seamlessly with our current group of veterans. He is a special talent at a position of need for us, and more importantly, he is a great addition to the culture we are building here in Cleveland.”
