John Shurna, Northwestern basketball's all-time leading scorer, has signed an NBA Summer League deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, according to Chris Haynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

Shurna graduated Northwestern in 2012 after winning the Big Ten scoring title in his senior season, and since, he's been all over the place. He played Summer League with the Atlanta Hawks in 2012, and was in preseason camp with the Knicks, but was waived before the start of the season. He then went to France to play a season with Strasbourg.

In 2013, Shurna came back to the Summer League to play with the Milwaukee Bucks. He then went back overseas to sign with Juventut Badalona of the Spanish league, where he played the 2013-14 season.

Shurna once again gave the Summer League a shot in 2014, this time with the Toronto Raptors, but headed back to Europe, this time to Turkey, for the season. He had a successful year with Darüşşafaka.

Now, it looks like he'll be giving the NBA yet another shot, and he's still just 25 years old.

Along with Shurna, the Cavs also reportedly signed former UW-Green Bay star Keifer Sykes.
