Cleveland Cavaliers: Kevin Love, JR Smith, two-way options and other things seen and heard at summer league
Author: Chris Fedor
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- The Cleveland Cavaliers wrapped up summer league play on Friday night with an overtime win against the Sacramento Kings. It capped more than two weeks of work and eight total games, covering both Salt Lake City and Las Vegas.
Here are some things seen and heard:
Where is the (Kevin) Love?
With all three of their rookies signing while in Salt Lake City, the Cavaliers have 14 players under contract for the 2019-20 season. All but three of them joined the team in either Utah or Nevada, as the team primarily focused on team-building over the last few weeks.
JR Smith is exiled. The organization continues to seek a potential trade partner. If that doesn’t happen, Smith will be waived by Aug. 1. Matthew Dellavedova wasn't there, but stayed in touch with rookie Dylan Windler, texting him after one of the eight games. Kevin Love was touring the country, something he had already planned, wanting to fit that in between the end of season and start of Team USA activities, which begin in August with training camp. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
