On Wednesday, the Cleveland Cavaliers announced their full roster for this year’s summer league. The roster, as previously reported, is headlined by point guard Kay Felder and center Walter Tavares. The notable additions to the roster are Sir’Dominic Pointer, who the Cavs originally selected in the second of the 2015 NBA Draft, and Malcolm Thomas, who played for the Jilin Northeast Tigers in the Chinese Basketball Association last season after bouncing around the NBA and D-League. The team will be coached by assistant coach Damon Jones.

Here’s the Cavs’ full roster:

Cleveland’s first game is Friday at 7 p.m. at the Thomas & Mack Center against the Milwaukee Bucks’ summer league squad headlined by Thon Maker, Rashad Vaughn and Gary Payton II. They then play the next day at 10 p.m. vs. the Houston Rockets at Cox Pavilion and then on Monday at 10:30 p.m. at the Thomas & Mack Center. A full tournament schedule can be found here.

The team Cleveland is bringing to Las Vegas is decent, if unspectacular. There are players — namely Andrew White III — who could be in the running for a camp invite or a two-way contract. It’s also a chance for Felder and Tavares to prove themselves ahead of training camp, as both are on easily shreddable deals, but could also compete for a rotation spot come fall. And if the Cavs were able to find any talents to take a flier on in the process — it’s very possible a number of these players could end up on the Canton Charge — that’s a win for a team that needs to identify young talent that even has a slight chance of developing into role players.
