In case you missed it, Robert "Tractor" Traylor has returned to the NBA, playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers summer league team. This feature will last as long as he sticks around. My guess is this feature will be short-lived.
In the Cavaliers Summer League contest against the Houston Rockets, Traylor finished with 6 points (2-5 from the floor), 2 offensive rebounds, and 4 personal fouls in 16 minutes of action. Traylor made the most of one of his baskets, earning a mention in the NBA.com recap for putting the Cavs ahead midway through the fourth. Unfortunately, Tractor's clutch basket was all for naught, as the Cavs fell 73-72.
Traylor has yet to crack Cleveland's starting lineup, which is not a good sign for anyone who wants to see him somehow make their regular season roster. He has two games remaining to showcase himself before the NBA Summer League comes to a close. Quiver in fear, Cleveland all-you-can-eat restaurants: the inevitable post-cut Tractor eating binge may soon be upon you.
