Although his name wasn’t called in Thursday night’s NBA Draft, former Syracuse University stand-out Andrew White III is going to have a chance to showcase his skills in this year’s NBA Summer League tournament with the Eastern Conference champion Cleveland Cavaliers.
White, a 6-7, 210 pound guard, led the Orange with 18.5 points in his one collegiate season and was a third-team All-ACC selection. The Richmond native scored double-digits in 31 of Syracuse’s 34 games last season while setting a new team record with 109 three-pointers made.
White will join Cavaliers point guard Kay Felder and center Edy Tavares in the sands of Las Vegas. Other members of Cleveland’s Summer League squad, which will be coached by Cavs assistant Damon Jones, include guard Brandon Paul, forward Casey Prather, power forward Grant Jerrett, forward Roosevelt Jones, and forward Gerald Beverly. Avid hoops fans will recognize Jones, Jarrett, and Beverly from Cleveland’s G-League affiliate team, the Canton Charge.
This year’s Summer League festivities will commence on July 7th, with ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, and NBA TV having live broadcast coverage.
