Warriors invite player with last name Cleveland to training camp


Warriors invite player with last name Cleveland to training camp

The Warriors made a move on Thursday.

Golden State agreed to terms on a training camp invite with Antonius Cleveland, NBC Sports Bay Area has learned.

As a senior at Southeast Missouri State last year, Cleveland averaged 16.6 points, 5.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists and 1.4 steals per game.

He shot over 54 percent from the field and over 38 percent from 3-point territory (28 for 73).

The 6'6" guard played for the Portland Trail Blazers during the NBA Summer League in Las Vegas.

Over six games, he averaged 5.8 points.

If Cleveland doesn't nab the 15th roster spot with Golden State, he could end up with the Santa Cruz Warriors as an affiliate player.

ESPN's Ian Begley first reported Cleveland's deal with the Warriors.


Report: Cavs can't get in contact with Kyrie Irving


Report: Cavs can't get in contact with Kyrie Irving

It appears that things are not salvageable in Cleveland. 

The Cavs have tried to communicate with Kyrie Irving but he isn't speaking with anybody from the organization, according to The Athletic's Jason Lloyd.

On July 7, Irving requested a trade.

On Wednesday, new GM Koby Altman and owner Dan Gilbert addressed the questions surrounding Irving's future with the Cavs.

"These things are fluid," Gilbert said. "We think that Kyrie Irving is one of the best guards in the NBA. He was part of a championship, three years straight to the Finals and we value his talent - significantly...

"Right now, Kyrie Irving is under contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers for two or three years, depending on the last year. As of now he's one of our best players and sure, we expect him to be in camp."

Irving recently returned from a Nike tour in Asia -- that included stops in Japan, Taiwan and China.

How do we know he returned?

Because he posted this to Snapchat:

The Cavs certainly don't have to honor Irving's request.

He is under contract for two more seasons -- $18,868,625 in 2017-18 and $20,099,188 in 2018-19 -- plus a $21,329,750 player option in 2019-20.

LeBron James, meanwhile, is reportedly working out with new teammate Derrick Rose in Las Vegas this week...
