The Cavaliers have signed first-round draft picks Anthony Bennett and Sergey Karasev and second-round pick Carrick Felix to contracts, the team announced Tuesday.
It’s all a formality in the NBA because the rookie scale contracts dictate what teams can pay.
While the exact figures aren’t immediately available, Bennett — who played a year at UNLV before turning pro — was expected to sign for the maximum 120 percent of the rookie scale, which would be about $5.3 million for this season.
Felix signed his deal a few weeks ago but the team never formally announced it.
The Cavaliers will control both players for five seasons.
The Cavs now have 15 players under contract for this season.
