Kurz Joins Cavs

Rob Kurz, who played with the 76ers-New Jersey Nets entry in the Orlando summer league, has joined the Cleveland Cavaliers on a make-good contract. Colleague Brian Windhorst of the Cleveland Plain Dealer suggests Kurz has ''a solid chance'' of making the team.

Just after the conclusion of summer competition, Sixers president/general manager Ed Stefanski indicated he had some interest in inviting Kurz to the Sixers training camp, which opens Sept. 29 at Saint Joseph's University. There were also rumblings that the Denver Nuggets were interested.

As an undrafted rookie last season, the 6-9 Kurz averaged 3.9 points in 40 games (five starts) for the Golden State Warriors. He rang up a season-best 21 points April 11 vs. the Utah Jazz.
