Tyler Haws to play with Cleveland Cavaliers summer league team in Las Vegas

A pair of local Utah news sources reported Monday that BYU's all-time leading scorer will be joining the Cleveland Cavaliers' Summer League team in Las Vegas.

Jason Shepherd first reported the news that guard Tyler Haws will play for Cleveland in Vegas and the BYU basketball team later confirmed the report.

The Las Vegas Summer League tournament runs from July 10-20.

Other players reported to be on the Cavaliers' Vegas Summer League squad include Duke guard Quinn Cook, Cavaliers second-year shooting guard Joe Harris, N.C. State guard Trevor Lacey, Darüşşafaka S.K. (Turkey) power forward John Shurna and University of Wisconsin–Green Bay guard Keifer Sykes, according to Hoops Hype. The team has yet to officially announce its Vegas roster.

Haws wasn't selected during the NBA draft last week. He left BYU as the school's all-time leading scorer with 2,720 career points. Haws averaged 22.2 points, 4.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game during his senior season.

Haws has already signed a contract with a team in Spain, Obradoiro Clube de Amigos do Baloncesto, if his NBA options don't pan out.

Two years ago, a fellow West Coast Conference alum, Saint Mary's Matthew Dellavedova, turned a Summer League audition into a spot on the regular-season roster with the Cavaliers. During the 2013 Las Vegas Summer League tourney, Dellavedova averaged 2.8 points, three assists and 20.1 minutes during five Summer League games, then signed a two-year deal with Cleveland in September 2013.

Dellavedova, who is now a restricted free agent, starred during stretches of this year's NBA Finals, which Golden State won in six games over Cleveland. Dellavedova's best game came in Game 3, when he scored 20 points in the Cavaliers' 96-91 victory. He also played a key role in defending Golden State star Stephen Curry.

Both Haws and Dellavedova have the same agent, Bill Duffy of BDA Sports.

Here's a look at the Cavaliers' Vegas Summer League schedule:

Friday, July 10: Cleveland vs. Golden State, 8:30 p.m. MDT, Thomas & Mack Center

Saturday, July 11: Cleveland vs. Brooklyn, 8 p.m., Cox Pavilion

Monday, July 13: Cleveland vs. Milwaukee, 2 p.m., Cox Pavilion

A tournament-style schedule begins July 15 and runs through the championship game on July 20
