The Cleveland Cavaliers are really close to terms on a deal that would bring free agent forward Leon Powe to the team.

The deal is expected to be finalized today pending an evaluation by team doctors on Powe's left surgically repaired knee. If the progress in the knee is going as well as expected, Powe will sign a two-year contract for the league minimum.

The Cavs would hold the upper-hand in the contract, as they left the second year of the contract open with a team option.
