The Cleveland Cavaliers have a roster filled with young, exciting, powerful players.
That was part of their advantage over other squads last year: they had a sort of youthful energy that was hard to match.
They wanted to win and wanted to play hard and you could feel their determination.
One of the guys who played his heart out was Caris LeVert after he came over from the Indiana Pacers.
The Cavs seemed to enjoy having him on the team but will they keep him around?
Here's a noteworthy date to remember as we get closer to the end of the month:
On August 7, Caris LeVert can be extended for up to four years and roughly $100 million by the #Cavs.
If extended, his new deal would obviously kick in next season alongside Darius Garland's deal.

Evan Dammarell pointed out that on August 7, LeVert’s contract can be extended for up to four years and roughly $100 million.
If the team decides to make this happen, the deal would start next season alongside a new contract with Darius Garland.
So, what are the chances that the team sees LeVert as an essential part of its future?
LeVert Looking Ahead
LeVert has been in the league since 2016 when he was drafted by the Pacers in the first round.
However, he got his start playing for the Brooklyn Nets, where he remained until the 2020-21 season when he was sent to Indiana.
After his time with the Pacers, LeVert moved to the Cavaliers.
It was there where many people thought he would break out again in a big way.
Over just 19 games, LeVert put up 13.6 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 3.9 assists too.
Cleveland began to trust LeVert more and more and let him start in 10 of his 19 games, keeping him on the floor for an average of 29 minutes a game.
Obviously, the Cavaliers like what they see from LeVert but it remains to be seen how much they want to invest in the young man.
Well, in a few weeks we will know for sure what lies ahead for LeVert.
