We are one step closer to seeing the Cleveland Cavaliers play basketball again.
The Cavs have announced that their annual Wine & Gold game will be played Oct. 5 Quicken Loans Arena, according to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal. The game will tip-off at 7 p.m.
More details from Lloyd:
The annual intrasquad scrimmage will be free and tickets are available beginning Friday at Discount Drug Mart locations in northern Ohio or online at www.Cavs.com.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and fans will receive a 2015-16 roster card. Concessions will be available at prices discounted from the regular-season charges and a variety of activities will take place on the concourse.
We know that Kyrie Irving will not be participating in this game as he recovers from a fractured knee that he suffered in the NBA Finals. The the chances of Kevin Love playing in this game are unlikely as well. Outside of those two, expect everyone else - sans Tristan Thompson, maybe - on the Cavs roster to be on the floor this game.
