CLEVELAND -- The Cleveland Cavaliers, looking to add backcourt depth, signed former Memphis Grizzlies guard Tarence Kinsey on Monday.

Kinsey split last season between Memphis and Fenerbahce Ulker Istanbul in the Turkish league. In his second season with Memphis, he averaged 3.6 points and 8.7 minutes in 11 games. In Turkey, the 6-foot-6 Kinsey averaged 9.2 points in 14 games.

As a rookie with Memphis in 2006-07, Kinsey made 12 starts in 48 games, averaging 7.7 points.

The Cavaliers remain in talks with restricted free-agent point guard Delonte West, who joined them in a February trade.
