T.J. Williams of Northeastern will play summer league with Cleveland, per league sources. Williams, the CAA Player of the Year, led the conference in scoring and was second in assists. He also impressed in workouts, including one for the New York Knicks. Williams, a 6-3 point guard, averaged 21.4 points, 5.3 assists and 4.7 rebounds per game. For reference: the last CAA POY from Northeastern was JJ Barrera.

Statement from Cavs assistant general manager Koby Altman after a quiet draft night when Cleveland made no picks and no trades: "We came into tonight's NBA Draft with an opportunistic mindset should a situation develop for us to acquire any pick we felt would help improve our roster. While we had discussions specifically focused on acquiring picks tonight, we did not feel any of the draft-related options available to us created an opportunity to improve our team or tie into larger deals at this point. As we do year-round, our group will continue to creatively and aggressively evaluate and consider potential trades and free agent signings that would help us reach our singular goal of winning another NBA championship."
