A pair of former Cleveland Cavaliers were part of the G-League expansion draft for the Capital City Go-Go on Wednesday, according to Adam Johnson of Two Ways and 10 Days.

The new affiliate of the Washington Wizards filled its roster with a combination of veterans and young players, including former Cavaliers Alonzo Gee and Luke Harangody, along with former Pacer and 76er Lavoy Allen.
As was the case with last season’s expansion draft, being selected does not guarantee any of the 14 players picked will play for Capital City this season.
Many of the players are still in search of opportunities to play in the NBA and others are exploring opportunities to play overseas.
Gee, 31, played for five other teams in addition to Cleveland in his eight seasons in the league. He has not played in the NBA since the 2016-17 season.
Harangody, 30, played in 70 games for the Cavs and Celtics, though has not played in the league since the 2011-12 campaign.
Allen, 29, played 388 games for Philly and then Indiana, having last played in the NBA in the 2016-17 season.
In addition to Gee, Harangody and Allen, also selected by the Go-Go were Quinton Chievous, Michael Cobbins, Will Cummings, Alex Davis, Will Davis, Duje Dukan, Kellen Dunham, Tyler Harvey, Pe’Shon Howard, Vince Hunter and Stephen Zimmerman.
G-League franchises were allowed to protect up to 12 players on their respective rosters, with Capital City permitted to take no more than two players from any one team.
Capital City’s addition to the G League brings the total number of teams in the league to 27. Only the Pelicans, the Nuggets and the Trail Blazers do not have direct affiliates.
