With a few good big men ahead of him on the depth chart, Romeo Travis will have to struggle for playing time during the summer league, which began Saturday night.
The Cavaliers beat San Antonio, but the former Zips' star did not play.
The forwards ahead of Travis, Darius Rice and Dijon Thompson, combined for 28 points and 14 rebounds. Cleveland will play the second of five games tonight against Team China at 8 p.m. in Las Vegas.
A new offer...
Derek Carter, safety, Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. Offers: Akron, Wisconsin, Central Michigan, Florida Atlantic and Louisiana-Lafayette Height: 6-foot-0 Weight: 205 Speed: 4.55 Notes: Rivals said Carter emerged as a sleeper during a camp at Rutgers. He is the third prospect from Ft. Lauderdale to whom Akron has offered a scholarship. Likelihood: If one of these three commits (the other two are linebacker David Williams and cornerback Stephen Atkinson), it could help in swaying the others.
