Check out some of what Chris Fedor of cleveland.com wrote about second-round pick Luke Travers turning some heads with the Cavs’ Summer League team.
R.J. Nembhard scored a team-high 20 points, looking poised, polished and comfortable running the offense in his second summer league.
First-round pick Ochai Agbaji, with a green light from coach Mike Gerrity, splashed jumpers from all over the floor. Summer league invite Amar Sylla, having spent his entire professional career overseas, nearly recorded a points-rebounds double-double while making all seven of his shot attempts.
Second-round pick Isaiah Mobley had a couple stunning passes rarely seen from a 6-foot-10 big man.
And yet, following the Cleveland Cavaliers’ 99-90 win over San Antonio in their summer league opener, little-known Luke Travers — the mullet-rocking Australian swingman taken with the No. 56 pick — was generating most of the buzz.
“That was my first time seeing him really, really go,” Agbaji said of his draft mate. “And man, he can go, just like the rest of us. His IQ and vision for the game is crazy. He was making some great plays out there.”
The 6-foot-7 Travers, who will be stashed overseas for at least another year because of his rawness and Cleveland’s roster crunch, did a little bit of everything in his first NBA action. He scored six points, grabbed five rebounds, dished out three dimes and swatted five shots (he says his career-high is four). He did it all while playing just 24 minutes.
“Definitely surprised me,” Gerrity said. “I saw throughout camp, him getting some blocks and going up and getting some dunks, so I knew he was athletic and capable of that. But he blew me away. There was that stretch in the third quarter where I think he had three blocks in a row. It really changed the flow of the game. It was impressive.”
Gerrity was at Cleveland Clinic Courts when Travers conducted his pre-draft workout. Travers was part of a competitive group session early in the process with Khalifa Diop (Cleveland’s No. 39 pick), Notre Dame guard Blake Wesley, who scored 20 points for the Spurs in the loss, Nebraska guard Bryce McGowens, Cleveland summer league invite Malik Osborne and Karlo Matkovic — taken 52nd by New Orleans.
Gerrity, the team’s player development coach, then watched film from Travers’ season with the Perth Wildcats in the NBL. He’s been with the youngster for the last week-plus in preparation for summer league.
