Cleveland Cavaliers Media Day: Everything you need to know to be ready for training camp

It's time for training camp! The season is here!

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!

The weirdest season in recent memory, which led to an even more bizarre offseason might finally lead to actual basketball! LeBron James, Kevin Love, Kyrie Irving, and the rest of the Cavaliers will be at the Cleveland Clinic Courts bringing in the new season today, as it is MEDIA DAY! We couldn't be more excited to get the season rolling, and show you some of the things we have up our sleeve for the new year.

In the offseason, NBA Teams are allowed to bring 20 players into Camp, which is an extra 5 over the normal roster limit of 15. Without further ado, here are your 2014-2015 Cleveland Cavaliers:

Advanced profiles of the guys that will feature heavily in the rotation will be coming in the next few weeks, so I won't bore you with any long breakdowns here. Besides, save for Alex Kirk and Joe Harris, the Cavaliers newcomers are all pretty well known.
