Leo Lyons completed the first summer league stint of his NBA career with the Indiana Pacers this week and now the former Tiger is headed to Las Vegas to play for the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Lyons helped the Pacers to an undefeated 5-0 mark in the Orlando Pro League as he played in three contests before trekking to Las Vegas to play for the Cavilers starting Saturday. The Kansas City native did not play in the first game in Orlando and missed Friday’s finale as he traveled to join Cleveland. In his three games with the Pacers Lyons logged just under 11 minutes a game and averaged 7.0 points on 3-of-5 shooting from the floor and an impressive 11-of-12 shooting from the foul line.
The 6-foot-9 forward’s top game of the Orlando league came in a 95-79 win over Utah on July 8, where he scored nine points thanks to 7-of-7 shooting from the foul line. He also scored seven points on 3-of-3 shooting from the floor in a 91-88 win over Oklahoma City on July 7
