News: Bennett had 13 points (6-9 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT) with 14 rebounds in 30 minutes during the win over San Antonio on Sunday in the Las Vegas Summer League.
Impact: Bennett continues to look like a new player after a lost rookie season. He has slimmed down noticeably and has more spring when hitting the boards. The 2013 first overall pick showed more offensive efficiency in the second summer league game and could carve a decent role with the 2014-15 Cavs.

News: James has signed a two-year, $42.1 million contract with the Cavaliers.

News: James officially signed with the Cavaliers for two years and $42.1 million, ESPN's Brian Windhorst reports.
Impact: While James' deal includes a player option that allows him to opt out after the 2014-15 season, the report indicates James is fully committed to staying with Cleveland long-term. The reason for the shorter deal is the anticipated jump in salary in 2016, as well as the uncertainty surrounding the current CBA. All signs at this point suggest James will exercise his option next summer and sign a new deal before the 2016-17 season.
