Cavs to face winner of Sixers-Lakers in summer league tournament

New, comments

Cleveland is the No. 2 seed in the tournament.

Off to a 3-0 start in the Las Vegas Summer League play, the Cleveland Cavaliers are the No. 2 seed as tournament play starts, and as a result, get a first round bye. The Toronto Raptors are the top seed.

As a result, the Cavs will face the winner of tonight’s Los Angeles Lakers-Philadelphia 76ers game on Thursday at 10:30 p.m. on ESPN2. From there, three more wins would net the Cavs a summer league title.

Winning the summer league title would be a good accomplishment for the Cavs’ roster even if it doesn’t mean all that much. For one, it would give Kay Felder, Edy Tavares and the other Cavs more game reps. It also gives the Cavs more time to evaluate players on the roster and identify who could be worth signing to a two-way contract. Plus, winning is never a bad thing, right?
