The Cavaliers have claimed guard A.J. Price off waivers from Indiana.

Price was with Cleveland during training camp and the exhibition season before being waived by the Cavs on Nov. 1. The six-year veteran appeared in 10 games for the Pacers, averaging 10.5 points in 19 minutes.

Price will stay with the Indiana Pacers another 10 days after the team was granted a second injury hardship relief exception by the NBA.

Price initially signed with the Pacers on Nov. 6. He's played in six games for the Pacers, averaging 13.0 points and 2.8 assists.

The Pacers are bringing back Price. Indiana signed the free agent Thursday but did not provide details of the contract. Price spent his first three NBA seasons with the Pacers and the addition is expected to help a team decimated by injuries.

The Pacers (1-4) lost two-time All-Star Paul George with a broken right leg during the summer. They also are playing without power forward David West (sprained right ankle), guard George Hill (bruised left knee), backup point guard C.J. Watson (bruised right foot) and guard Rodney Stuckey (strained tendon in left foot). The NBA gave Indiana a hardship exception to add Price, who was waived by Cleveland on Saturday.
