Summer league games will air on NBA TV and select games will be available online via ESPN. The league kicks off play on July 10 and play wraps up on July 20.

The Cavs team figures to be different than in years fast due to Cleveland's transformation from perennial bottom feeder to title contender last summer when LeBron James returned to Cleveland and the Cavaliers acquired Kevin Love from the Timberwolves. Last year, the Cavs' team was headlined by Andrew Wiggins and Anthony Bennett, both whom were traded for Love. Guard Joe Harris, who the Cavs took last year in the second round, is the only player on the current roster who figures to play in Las Vegas. He'll likely be joined by whomever the Cavs take in the June's NBA Draft.
