The Cavaliers going after Australian guard

According to, CJ Bruton accepted an offer from the Cleveland Cavaliers to play for Cleveland at next month’s Las Vegas Summer League, which is attended by top NBA scouts, executives and coaches.

“Van Groningen began talks with Bruton when the Brisbane boss was a guest of the Cavaliers program in May. He said Bruton — who enjoyed an initial NBL stint in Brisbane in 1998 — was keen to return to Queensland and follow in the footsteps of his father, legendary championship-winning Bullet Cal Bruton.”

Bruton was picked up in the NBA draft by Portland in 1997 but is yet to break into the NBA.
