Summer League Live Thread: Cavs vs Wizards

Welcome to Vegas, peeps! The summer Cavs (some some aren’t) debut tonight. Colin Sexton, Ante Zizic, John Holland, Okaro White, and Cedi Osman join undrafted free agents Dakota Mathias, Billy Preston, and a host of hopefuls like Scoochie Smith as they take on Sam Cassell Jr., Troy Brown Jr., and the aptly named Phillip Scrubb. It’s going to be epic. Check it out at 9:00 on NBATV or at nba.com, and let’s go Cavs!

Good to see Preston on a two-way this year. We should use at least 1 of our two-ways on a swing for the fences guy who needs developing.

Holland was rough last night. I think his 2-way is up for grabs.

Saw plenty of good signs from our young guys. Sexton is Speedy Gonzalez out there, dude has crazy speed. He needs to learn to finish after taking the bump around the hoop.

Cedi needs to continue working on his 3pt shot. Although I wish he would had gone to the basket more yesterday.

Zz is a solid workhorse. Dude can only get better. My only hope is that TT gets shipped soon so he can get those minutes with Nance.

Solid foundation.

I mean, you can’t play him and Nance together for long stretches since they both basically occupy the same exact space. They should look nice next to Love until he gets traded, though.

Preston looks like he might have some stretch 4 potential once he gets readjusted to high-level basketball and fills out his frame a little bit. He made 1 of 2 from 3, and he’s really good attacking the closeouts. A little extra muscle might help him finish some of those drives. But once he gets back in game shape and comfortable with the speed, he might also not even need the extra muscle right away because he’ll be able to get to his spots faster or adjust on the fly when the help rotation comes.

I meant Zz and Nance would divide TT’s minutes, not exactly play together.

I think we’re going to have to wait a few seasons for Sexton to really answer the shooting question, and but he was able to create a lot of driving lanes that he’ll be able to finish on once he gets used to the NBA game, and he answered a lot of questions about his passing. He didn’t have any assists, but made a lot of good reads on the move, hitting guys going to the basket and kicking it out to the corner and wing for 3. Cedi played alright, but I was hoping to see him attack the basket more off the dribble and cuts, get down hill, finish in traffic, hit guys with passes on the move. He did flash some of that as the game progressed, and obviously played some energetic D most of the game. Ty Lue is going to need to find him a role and coach him up if he’s going to maximize his talent on the Cavs. And cmon, Cedi… work on them free throws. Zizic looks better already this year after his train wreck of a summer league for Boston last year. Footwork is looking more nimble, had some good finishes… Read more »

Glad to see the Cavs signed Preston to a 2-way deal. He looks a little bit like Zizic did early last year, in that he’s not quite up for the speed and physicality of the NBA quite yet. But he definitely had some flashes. He took some weird floaters (?) off nice moves that created contact, but if he’d stepped through quicker, he would have gotten a foul or layup, and if he was stronger, he would have been able to absorb the contact and then use his athleticism to go up strong. Obviously, he’ll also need to work on his footwork and touch, but the foundation is there. He was also a surprisingly willing playmaker at times. That lob over the top from the high post was a nice surprise.

Cavs have got to get rid of Tristan Thompson, even if it means taking on an equally bad contract. He plays the same type of game as Nance and Zizic, but he’s not anywhere near as good offensively, and one of them is going to be the odd man out if Lue keeps playing Tristan. Honestly, I might even stretch his contract if they can’t find a taker.

Just watched the game…honestly…Cedi and Zizic are still the best two young prospects the cavs have. Zizic espcially has big Z like qualities without the inury history. He could absolutely develop that bailout 18 footer, and also has really great instincts on the offensive glass. If he doesn’t make a difference for the cavs this year, he will make a difference for someone else. Scouts are going to pay attention.

Cedi had a weird game but he still is a constant presence on defense and has fantastic vision on offense. He is also an absolute impact player that other good organizations/teams will pounce on if we fail to see his potential.

Cedi had a flight from Istanbul through LA to get to Vegas the day before. That is some serious jetlag to be playing with

sexton is 6/6/ from foul line——the shot just needs some fine tuning / a lot of reps/ think he will be a good ( probably not great ) nba shooter —love the way ante is playing —ty are you watching this kid play—-PLAY HIM / CEDI
