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.
