Mitrou-Long totaled 19 points (6-11 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 4-6 FT), three rebounds, two assists and one block across 26 minutes during the Cavaliers' 99-78 loss to the Pelicans in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday. Mitrou-Long's scoring total led the Cavs on the night and helped offset his team-high five turnovers. The young guard has made good use of his opportunity in the desert thus far, averaging 16.8 points (43.0 percent shooting), 5.5 assists and 5.0 rebounds across 26.8 minutes over four games.
Mitrou-Long totaled 21 points ((6-8 FG, 3-3 3Pt, 6-7 FT), eight assists, five rebounds and a steal across 27 minutes in Sunday's 82-75 win over the Bulls in the Las Vegas Summer League Cleveland is pretty much set with their backcourt but Mitrou-Long is making a case for himself. The Cavs granted him a Summer League spot after Utah declined to renew his contract. the 6-4 guard will try to catch on with the Cavs in some capacity, with the G-League being the most likely possibility.
Mitrou-Long agreed Saturday to join the Cavaliers for the Las Vegas Summer League, Eric Woodyard of the Deseret News reports. Mitrou-Long's two-way contract with the Jazz is set to expire July 1, so his decision to explore summer-league opportunities implies that Utah won't extend him a qualifying offer. The 25-year-old guard appeared in 14 games for the Jazz in 2018-19, averaging 1.1 points and 1.1 assists in 6.0 minutes.
Mitrou-Long (illness) returned to the starting lineup Tuesday, finishing the contest with 17 points (8-13 FG, 1-4 3Pt), three rebounds, three assists and a block. Mitrou-Long actually fouled out, so it's quite possible the point guard could have played more than 29 minutes had it not been for foul trouble. One of the more balanced offenses in the G League, Mitrou-Long likely won't put up ridiculous numbers on a game-to-game basis, but is poised to exceed his 2017-18 numbers despite playing less minutes.
Mitrou-Long (illness) did not play in Sunday's loss to the Blue. Given Mitrou-Long was listed out with an illness, it's fair to suspect the two-way player will be back for the Tuesday contest against the Hustle.
