The Cavaliers are the opening act for their appearance in the four-team, three-day Salt Lake City NBA summer league, which tips off July 1.
Getting things started will be the Cavs and San Antonio Spurs at 7 p.m. EST, with the Memphis Grizzlies and Utah Jazz to follow. All games are being held at the Jazz’s Vivint Smart Home Arena.
The SLC summer run could feature an array of first-round selections, as the Grizzlies currently own the No. 2 overall pick and the Cavaliers own the Nos. 5 and 26. Meanwhile, the Spurs are slated to draft 19th and 29th in the first round, with the Jazz drafting 23rd.
The Grizzlies have been linked to dynamic Murray State point guard Ja Morant with their second overall selection.
New Cavs coach John Beilein is likely to coach at least one of the Cavs’ summer games, either in Salt Lake City or Las Vegas after that.
Tickets for SLC are available for as low as $9 a game, or as low as $16 for all three days. They can be purchased at, on the Jazz mobile app or by calling (801) 355-DUNK.
