Alex Kirk Joining Cavs for Summer League

Basketball Insiders

As hot as Las Vegas, Nev., is during the summer, it won’t be nearly as intense as the battles on the basketball courts of the Cox Pavilion and the Thomas and Mack Center.

Alex Kirk will be part of that mix, as the 2010 Los Alamos graduate and former center for The University of New Mexico will spend the first few weeks of July with other NBA players and prospects in the NBA Summer League. Kirk on Friday agreed to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the Las Vegas summer session. The 6-foot-11 Kirk, who was not picked Thursday in the NBA Draft, drew interest from several teams, but agent Graham Boone of Tandem Sports said Cleveland offered his client the best opportunity to show his skills.

LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.

James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
