It's time for the summer league where fringe roster players will try to make the Cavs and rookies and other youngsters will look to show what they have for more regular season minutes. Along with the names you are familiar with, look out for center David Harrison, a tough center formerly of Indiana. He's a legit contender to make the roster as a 6th big and a third 7-footer behind Z and Shaq. Leo Lyons was impressive as Missouri and may be a longshot to make the roster as a combo forward. Remember, it's not about wins or losses but you do want to see solid performances from people like Darnell Jackson, Tarence Kinsey and Jawad Williams who we may look for at times to contribute this season.
