The Cleveland Cavaliers have finally announced their team's roster for Las Vegas Summer League. Summer League starts on Friday, July 12th and the Cavaliers play their first game against the Los Angeles Lakers. Of course, it's not actually the Lakers because this is Summer League. Hardly any of the team's actual players end up on their Summer League roster.
This year, the Cavaliers will be without their two most recent first round picks. Anthony Bennett is still out after having shoulder surgery and Sergey Karasev is out playing overseas. The Cavaliers' two first round draft picks from last year WILL play, however. This should be a good chance for both Tyler Zeller and Dion Waiters to show what they can do against marginal competition.
Here's the full roster for Summer League in Las Vegas:
