NBA News: Cavaliers announce Summer League schedule

The Cleveland Cavaliers will once again participate in the Las Vegas Summer League. This year the league will be run a bit differently. Each team will have three ‘preliminary’ games in order to be seeded in the first Summer League tournament. The Cavs three preliminary games are-

Friday, July 12 vs. LA Lakers 8 p.m. EST COX Pavilion

Sunday, July 14 vs. Memphis 8 p.m. EST COX Pavilion

Monday, July 15 vs. New Orleans 6 p.m. EST COX Pavilion

The tournament will begin on July 17th.

Twenty-one of the NBA’s franchises will participate this summer, along with a team composed of select D-League players.

The Cavaliers are 18-23 in summer league play since it’s inception.

Cleveland currently has four picks in the upcoming NBA Draft, including the first, nineteenth, thirty-first and thirty-third selections. The Cavaliers traditionally send all their healthy draft picks to the Summer League.

    I can see the Cavs winning this tournament as long as Irving changes his mind and plays in this years summer league.
