The former Buckeye is now a member of the Cavs' NBA Developmental League team.

The Canton Charge, the D-League affiliate owned and operated by the Cleveland Cavaliers, acquired former Ohio State guard William Buford on Saturday. In the deal, the Charge also land a fourth round D-League Draft pick from the Santa Cruz Warriors in a complicated four-team trade.

Buford, who had started once for the affiliate of the Golden State Warriors, has played in 32 games this season in the NBA Development League, averaging 9.1 points on .410 shooting to go along with 3.3 rebounds, 1.4 assists, and 0.7 steals per contest. He'd averaged over 20 minutes per game. Buford spent the 2012-13 season playing for Blusens Monbus Obradoiro in Liga Endesa in Spain.

While a Buckeye, Buford averaged 13.7 points per game, shooting .419 from the field and also pulling down 5 boards per and dishing out 2.7 assists during a solid career. Buford struggled some his senior year but played a big role in the Buckeyes making a Final Four run that season.

Buckeyes wanting to see Buford in action can do so at Canton Memorial Civic Center. The Charge play about a 2 hour drive from C-bus.
