SANTA BARBARA, Calif.– The Cleveland Cavaliers were back in the gym this week.
“Great few days of mini camp with the squad!! Made each other better every single sec/min/hour we were on the floor! It’s the beginning of a long journey and we’ll be ready for the Process that comes with it!” James wrote.
For the first time in six years, the Cleveland squad appeared without Kyrie Irving, who was traded to Boston this off season.
There are plenty of new, but familiar faces, like former Celtics Isaiah Thomas, Jae Crowder and Ante Zizic, as well as Cedi Osman of the Turkish Basketball League.
The Cavs start the preseason at Quicken Loans Arena on Oct. 4 against the Hawks. The team’s first regular season game is Oct. 17 at home against Boston.
