Newbill has already taken part in an earlier summer program.

"I was happy to be invited to the Kevin Durant academy to play with some of the top guys in the country, and now I am ecstatic to be invited to the LeBron camp," Newbill said. "This shows that all the hard work from the last few years is paying off and I am grateful to my teammates and the coaching staff for helping me to get to this point."
