The game was already going to be a spectacle, with No. 1 pick Andrew Wiggins going against the Bucks’ No. 2 pick Jabari Parker, and 2013 top pick Anthony Bennett returning to UNLV’s campus to make his Summer League debut after an injury held him out last year. Then another former No. 1 pick made a decision that changes the NBA’s entire power structure. “I didn’t really believe it at first, but then I checked my phone and it was blowing up,” Bennett said. “Everybody was saying you’re going to be playing with the King now.” Las Vegas Sun

The game even did its best to live up to the hype, with Wiggins and Parker leading their teams with 18 and 17 points, respectively, in Cleveland’s 70-68 victory. Bennett finished right behind Wiggins with 15 points on 6-of-16 shooting and seven rebounds with eight fouls. Conditioning was a big issue in Bennett’s disastrous rookie season. That’s been a focus for him this offseason, and he appears slimmed down from his last game as a Rebel. “It was a learning experience for me,” Bennett said of his first pro season. “I learned I’ve got to put in a lot more hard work, take care of my body and come prepared.” Las Vegas Sun

The Cavaliers are expected to have one of the better teams entered in the Las Vegas Summer League, which starts on July 11. As expected, David Blatt will coach the team. The roster includes current Cavs players Anthony Bennett, Matthew Dellavedova, Carrick Felix, Sergey Karasev and Scotty Hopson. Also on the team are the Cavs’ two draft picks, Kansas swingman Andrew Wiggins (No. 1 overall) and Virginia swingman Joe Harris (33rd overall). The Cavs will play three preliminary round games, all broadcast live on NBA TV, before being seeded in the summer league tournament. Morning Journal

BTW I heard Anthony Bennett is finally in great shape. I still think he has a lot of potential. If he really works hard this summer he could still be a good pick for the Cavs. ESPN.com
