Newly established basketball club Wolves announced the signing of the 25-year-old guard.

Last season, Caver averaged 16.7 points (28.6 3PT%), 5.8 rebounds, 8.3 assists, 1.8 steals, and 0.7 blocks.

Caver's growth throughout last season impressed Hustle's players development coach Deividas Dulkys.

"[He improved] not because I showed him something special or he learned something. He simply wanted it [to improve]," Dulkys said in an interview with BasketNews during the NBA Las Vegas Summer League. "I showed him the video, where he did something well, but there were things he didn't notice."

"However, during the next game, you see that he already understands where or what kind of pass he should be making. This guy wants it, and he can do it. Then, as a coach, you want to give even more for such players," added Dulkys.

During the 2021-22 season, Caver also received an Exhibit 10 deal from the Indiana Pacers. He featured in one game, finishing with 2 points.

Wolves are preparing for its inaugural season as a club and will compete in the Lithuanian Basketball league in the upcoming season. 

The Vilnius-based team also tried to get an invitation to the 7DAYS EuroCup and FIBA Champions League but eventually got accepted into the FIBA Europe Cup tournament.

Apart from Caver, Wolves also signed Marcos Delia, Regimantas Miniotas, Kristupas Zemaitis, Adas Juskevicius, Eigirdas Zukauskas, Arnas Berucka, and Vitalijus Kozys. The team's head coach is Rimas Kurtinaitis.
