Cavs forward Dean Wade has agreed to a three-year, $18.5 million contract extension with the Cleveland Cavaliers, AP reports.

The Kansas State product will battle for a spot in the starting lineup in the upcoming training camp. Wade will receive $16.5 million guaranteed with his new deal.

He averaged 5.3 points and 2.9 rebounds in 51 games before suffering a knee injury that kept him out of the final 15 games.

The Cavaliers finished the season with a 44-40 record despite a huge number of injuries to key players and came one win short of entering the postseason via the play-in tournament.
