The Canton Charge of the NBA Development League will be holding their open tryouts for the upcoming 2014-2015 season. They open tryouts will take place on Saturday, September 20, 2014 at the Canton McKinley Memorial Field House. As in past years, basketball talent from all across the region and America will be showing their talents to the coaching staff in hopes of earning an invitation to be part of the team’s official training camp in November.
"With as much player evaluating we do on a constant basis throughout all levels of basketball around the world, there’s always talent out there we still might not be aware of,” said Cavaliers Director of Development League Operations Mike Gansey. “These tryouts give an opportunity for some of those diamonds in the rough take the next step in their own careers and help out our team.”
In the three seasons that the Canton Charge has been in existence a total of eight players have earned invites to the Charge training camp when they were picked by members of the Cleveland Cavaliers and Canton Charge basketball operations staffs.
The open tryout will consist of two sessions (both on Saturday, September 20, 2014). The times are 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 4:00 to 6:00 p.m.
