No LeBron? No problem. Cavs sign Brodziansky to Summer League squad

Vlad will get his NBA audition in Las Vegas.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round: Syracuse Orange vs TCU Horned Frogs Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports

LeBron who? Cavs fans need not fear that they have lost the best player in the game, as it was announced Tuesday that they have signed an even bigger star to their Summer League team.

All joking (?) aside, former Frogs Vladimir Brodziansky is indeed joining Cleveland’s Summer League squad, looking to make an NBA audition before potentially pointing his career to Europe. Though it is widely expected that the forward will eventually land overseas, he will have an excellent opportunity to make a positive impression as a stretch four with some ball-handling ability, exceptional shooting range, and ability to alter shots at the rim. Though he isn’t the most physical player at his size, he plays the way the modern NBA is going, and with his ability to run the floor and make shots, could be a tantalizing prospect for a team to stash in the G League for a season or two.

The Slovakian native spent three years with the Frogs, averaging 15 points, 5.1 rebounds, and shot 58% from the field. He averaged 13 points and over five boards per game in his career. He joins a roster that features former Jayhawk Billy Preston and Alabama rookie phenom Collin Sexton, as well as veterans Cedi Osman and Bonzie Coleman. Though there is a glut of forwards on the team, Vlad should get plenty of run in Las Vegas.

Vlad’s Cavs will not face Kenrich Williams’ Nuggets unless they meet in the championship tournament. The full schedule is below.
