The Cavaliers are holding open tryouts in both Cleveland and Canton for men interested in trying out for the team's new Development League team which begins play in Canton this fall.
The Cleveland tryout is Saturday, Oct. 8 and continues on Sunday, Oct. 9 at St. Ignatius. The Canton tryout is Saturday, Oct. 15 and continues on Sunday, Oct. 16 at Canton Fieldhouse. Participants must be available to participate on both days. Anyone who makes the cut will be invited to the D-League team's training camp.
All applicants must be eligible to play in the NBA D-League and should pre-register by Oct. 6 for the Cleveland tryouts or Oct. 13 for the Canton tryouts by submitting the official registration forms and a $150 fee. The fee increases to $200 at the door on-site at the tryouts. Information about the tryouts, registration forms and payment options and instructions are available online at www.CantonNBA.com or at the Canton team office located inside the Canton Memorial Civic Center.
"The open tryout process is an important part of our launch and a good way to evaluate additional talent on the court," Canton General Manager Wes Wilcox said. "It will be a great opportunity for players to make their case for an invitation to our training camp."
