Stauskas appeared in 44 games for the Portland Trail Blazers in 2018-19, averaging 6.1 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 1.4 assists in 15.3 minutes per contest.
Then, a week ago, the No. 8 pick in 2014 became the league's hot potato.
On Feb. 4, the Trail Blazers traded Stauskas to the Cavs as part of a package for Rodney Hood. Cleveland then re-routed Stauskas to the Houston Rockets in a three-team deal that included the Sacramento Kings. Before the ink was dry on that second transaction, the 25-year-old was shipped to the Indiana Pacers and subsequently released, opening the door for a return to the Cavaliers.
Through five seasons, the Canadian is averaging 6.9 points per game while shooting 34.9 percent from beyond the 3-point arc.
