LeBron joins Cavaliers at summer league finale

LAS VEGAS (AP) LeBron James made an appearance in Las Vegas to see the Cleveland Cavaliers' summer league finale.

James sat courtside on Friday for Cleveland's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves. He sat between Cavs general manager David Griffin and coach David Blatt, with assistant Tyronn Lue in the group as well.

James wore a white Indians baseball jersey with the No. 23 and ''King James'' on the back.

Last week James signed a two-year, $47 million contract that includes a player option on the second year. The deal will allow him to become a free agent again next summer, when the salary cap is expected to take a large jump as the league's new television contract kicks in.

James also co-stars in the Amy Schumer comedy ''Trainwreck'' that hit theaters last week.
