  • Billy Preston: Makes first appearance with Legends

    Preston made his first appearance with the Legends since being traded from the Bayhawks, scoring seven points (3-10 FG, 1-4 3Pt) to go along with 10 rebounds and a steal.

    Devoid of much depth, a trio of new additions, including Preston, will likely factor into the team's rotation in the coming weeks. There's a possibility that Kostas Antetokunmpo eventually finds his way up to the Mavericks at some point in the remaining portion of the NBA season, which could open up a starting power forward role for Preston shortly thereafter.

  • Cavaliers' Billy Preston: Near double-double off bench in quarterfinal win

    Preston delivered 10 points (3-8 FG, 0-1 3Pt, 4-6 FT), nine rebounds and one block across 23 minutes during the Cavaliers' 82-68 win over the Raptors in a Las Vegas Summer League quarterfinal-round contest Sunday.

    Preston continues to validate the Cavaliers' decision to sign him to a two-way contract with his play in Las Vegas, as he's consistently put together double-digit scoring tallies while also remaining productive on the boards. The 20-year-old will look to continue impressing in Monday's semifinal-round matchup against the Lakers.

    Preston continues to put together a solid body of work in the desert, with Saturday's performance pushing his averages to 10.8 points, 5.0 rebounds, 1.0 assist and 1.0 steal across 20.0 minutes over four games. He'll look to finish off his Las Vegas tenure on strong footing before heading into his first NBA training camp.
