NBL Summer League Tracker – Final Day

Luke Travers has helped his Cleveland Cavaliers to the Summer League championship on the eleventh and final day in Las Vegas.

Cleveland and Houston faced off in the final at the Thomas and Mack Centre, completing a hectic yet historical week and a half for Australian and NBL talent.

Travers, who was taken with the 56th pick in the 2022 NBA draft by the Cavs has been stashed in the NBL for the last season. Playing for his hometown club the Perth Wildcats, he averaged 9.7 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.1 steals and 0.9 blocks per game.

This off-season he’s changed teams, moving to Melbourne United on a three-year deal. While he is yet to play in blue, he made the move to show Cleveland what he can do outside of a home environment.

‘LT’ played all six games in Cleveland’s run to the championship, starting three of them while playing a variety of positions. He initially came off the bench as a sixth man playing at the small forward, while he would play big minutes at power forward and even short bursts at centre.

Cleveland would beat the Rockets in the final 99 to 78 in a crushing victory.

Travers played 34 of the 40 minutes in the game, having six points, four rebounds, four assists, one steal and two blocks with a +/- of +22, the second best in the game.

Throughout the Sin City tournament, he averaged 7.5 points, 6.3 rebounds, two assists, 0.8 steals and 2.2 blocks per game.

It is likely Travers will head back to the NBL to be stashed for a further year, after the Cavs have used all three of their two-way contract spots for the 23/24 season.
