Gee LeBron, it's nice you put your buddies on the summer league team.
Think they could serve as more than mascots?
Dru Joyce got on the floor for 2 seconds in the Cavaliers' summer league team's 97-94 loss to the Knicks on Monday. Romeo Travis did not play.
Despite the loss, first-round pick J.J. Hickson scored 26 points and grabbed nine rebounds.
