That’s what Erie BayHawks power forward Kyle Goldcamp initially thought when getting a call from Wes Wilcox around 1 p.m. Friday about coming to the Cleveland Cavaliers training camp.
“I know Wes from being affiliated with Cleveland,” Goldcamp said about the Cavaliers, who were an NBA affiliate of the BayHawks for their first three seasons in the D-League. Wilcox, who is the general manager of the expansion Canton Charge, is also the director of player personnel for the Cavaliers.
The BayHawks are now hybrid partners with the New York Knicks
“At first, I didn’t know why he was calling me. Then when he asked me to come to camp, I thought he was joking with me to be honest. “He was dead serious. I said, ‘Absolutely. I’ll come to camp.’ ”
Goldcamp got the call after Erie had its morning shootaround Friday before ironically playing the Charge later that night. By the time the former Gannon standout got to Cleveland and took his physical, the Cavaliers had already finished their first day of camp.
So Goldcamp will get his first shot with the Cavs today.
