Not sure what level of competition this is, but he's actually pretty impressive.

All kidding aside he seriously does look like an nba athlete the way he moves. Kind like the form of the jumper too, and looks like he has a motor. Who knows if he ever comes over, but I kind of wish we could bring him over next summer since we dont have a 1st rounder.Based on what I am reading and see here he looks like he could be a rotational nba player, but who knows if it will be in Cleveland. I dont think he is the stiff many of you are making him out to be.

Could this guy play on the summer league team even if he doesn't plan to come over this year?

Not a knock against Joe Harris, but this kid moves much more fluidly and athletic than him. Sounds like he's due for 2 years in Europe and possibly traded by the Cavs before he gets here, but I think he comes over and plays in the NBA by 22-23 years old.

Turkish League. Players who have played in the Turkish League: Hedo, Ersan Ilyasova, Mehmet Okur, Sasha Vujacic, Omer Asik, Enes Kanter, Bojan Bogdanovic, Semih Erden (Yay!), Bogdan Bogdanovic, Zaza, Milan Macvan, Furkan Aldemir, and a bunch of ex-NBA Americans like Allen Iverson, Adam Morrison, etc....fairly decent level of competition. How this guy develops from now til he is 22 (when his contract runs out in Turkey) will be interesting to watch.

He's under contract to a Turkish team until 2017, so he wouldn't be able to participate in summer league here until he's free of that contract.

Congrads, we'll never see you in Cav uniform. And by the time I wake up I'll forget who you are, to never hear about you again.

I'm not sure, actually.

Most European players (certainly ones who register to the draft) have NBA exit clauses. He can leave whenever he wants for an NBA team, probably.

Apparently, he's said he plans to stick with the Turkish team until 2017. But you're right in that he might exit that contract early. Seems unlikely given that the Cavs wouldn't be able to pay much to help him do so.

What I meant by the earlier post, though, is that as far as I know a player under contract to a team from an overseas league cannot participate in NBA summer league. He would have to get out that foreign contract first, rather than just show up in Vegas.

I don't know if they'll keep him but watching his draftexpress makes him very intriguing. I really like the way this guy plays, good defender, great slasher, and nice passing game. It seems Griff really likes this guy and was comparing the pick to how Mirotic was drafted and stashed.
I am sure Blatt had something to do with this... He seen the kid way more than any of us had I bet. I have a feeling this kid will be here three years from now.

He might not leave his club right now. I got a feeling we're gonna get back both our wings and he and his agent will think the Cavs will just stick him in DL.

What's Blatt's position regarding giving rookies a burn?

It's already been mentioned by Griffin that he will stay overseas for two years.
