Former Indiana forward D.J. White, who last spent time in the NBA in 2014 with the then-Charlotte Bobcats, will play in the NBA Summer League for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The Cavs announced their 13-man roster for the Vegas Summer League on Tuesday afternoon and it includes White, a first round pick in the 2008 NBA draft.

White played for Laboral Kutxa Vitoria of the ACB League (Spain) and the Fujian Sturgeons of the Chinese Basketball Association last season.

In 27 games for Fujian, White averaged 15.7 points and 7.4 rebounds in 27.4 minutes per game.

His best NBA season came in 2011-2012 for Charlotte, where he appeared in 58 games, made 11 starts and averaged 6.8 points and 3.6 rebounds in 18.9 minutes per game.

For his NBA career, the 28-year old White has averaged 5.9 points and 3.2 rebounds in stints for Oklahoma City, Charlotte and Boston.

White is the only first round pick on the Cavs Summer League roster, which also includes Rakeem Christmas, Sir’Dominic Porter and Joe Harris.

Former IU forward Christian Watford is currently playing for the Indiana Pacers in the Orlando Summer League and Will Sheehey will play for the New Orleans Pelicans in the Vegas Summer League.

    Lord Sir’Dominic Porter wishes for a fresh cup of tea to be available at every sparring session.

    Will be tough to beat out royalty for a shot on the team. Good luck to DJ I hope to see him sitting on the Cavs Bench next year during the season because we all know Blatt only plays 7 guys at most.

    Go DJ…that’s my DJ.

    He is the only one with true experience as a pro.. others are mostly rookies or 1st year players.. Could be a serious 12th man contender

    DJ has always been a high character, high quality, hard worker as a player. Any NBA team could use him. I hope that he gets another shot at the league. He is a Hoodier favorite!

    His best hope is they go so far over the cap they need non guaranteed contracts for the end of the roster
