    Waiters doesn’t see himself as a sixth man. What matters is does Blatt see him as a sixth man.

  7. Report: Why did Cavaliers sign Scotty Hopson? Trade bait.

    BASKET-EURL-ANADOLU-MILANO

    The Cavaliers really do like Scotty Hopson, a 6’7” two guard from Tennessee last seen playing in Turkey. However, they gave him a big deal to set him up as trade bait around the NBA Draft.

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while thinking it’s crazy that “Lost” is 10 years old… LeBron James, Miami Heat.

    Jan 29, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Los Angeles Lakers

    LOS ANGELES — Indiana is the best team in the NBA right now — they have the best record in the league (by percentage points over Oklahoma City) and they have the best point differential in the league. The Pacers are legitimate title contenders. They have done all that in spite of their offense. The…

    Brooklyn Nets v New York Knicks

    As the New York Knicks were serenaded with a mix of boos and chants of “Brooklyn! Brooklyn!” at Madison Square Garden during an embarrassing 23 point home loss to the Nets, it felt like rock bottom. Again. For about the seventh time. That’s the thing about the Knicks this season. When it looks like it…

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while having another coffee but just to help your memory…. Al Jefferson, Charlotte Bobcats.

  16. Report: Cavs players growing more frustrated with Dion Waiters

    Jan 13, 2014, 9:42 PM EDT

    dion waiters

    When a team loses by more than 40 points, it’s rarely only a product of the available talent on the floor. It’s usually a sign of deeper trouble going on within a given team’s ranks. The Cavaliers found themselves in this situation on Sunday, losing by 44 points in Sacramento in a game where Kyrie…

  17. Report: Cavs may hold off on contract talks with Luol Deng in hopes of pursuing LeBron James

    Jan 13, 2014, 10:14 AM EDT

    LeBron James Cavaliers

    When the Cavaliers ridded themselves of an unhappy Andrew Bynum and traded for Luol Deng, it was a short-term decision aimed at helping the team compete for a playoff spot in the miserable Eastern Conference this season. Deng is an unrestricted free agent this summer, so the deal amounts to nothing more than a half-season…

  18. The Extra Pass: Winners, losers from Bynum/Deng trade (plus Monday’s recaps)

    Jan 7, 2014, 8:00 AM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs v Chicago Bulls

    Winner: Luol Deng Deng is going to a team that desperately needs him. The Cleveland Cavaliers’ small forwards have a PER of 9.2 and yield a PER of 15.5 to opposing small forwards, according to 82Games.  That’s a horrific net PER of –6.3. Of the 150 positions in the NBA (five per team), only three have have…

  20. Report: Cavs have no interest in trading for Omer Asik

    Dec 14, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    The Rockets have made the decision to trade Omer Asik, and will more than likely do so during a five-day window that begins on Sunday. The reason for that specific timeline is due to the fact that players who signed new contracts last summer weren’t eligible to be traded until Dec. 15, and any players…

  21. Magic’s Nicholson ejected for late cheap shot on Cavs’ Varejao (VIDEO)

    Dec 14, 2013, 12:30 PM EDT

    Varejao

    Near the very end of the Cavaliers’ win over the Magic on Friday, Orlando’s Andrew Nicholson was called for a flagrant two foul that resulted in an automatic ejection for shoving Anderson Varejao to the floor. Apparently Nicholson didn’t appreciate the fact that Varejao scored the meaningless basket with the Cavs up six and just…

    United States v Brazil - Men's Exhibition Game

    Ever since LeBron James said he’d consider returning to the Cavaliers, it’s been fun to speculate. Will he do it? How would it affect his legacy? How great would LeBron and Kyrie Irving be together? It’s an interesting discussion, one that’s assuredly been held within in the league, by fans and many in between. And…

    Nov 26, 2013, 7:20 PM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    Dirk Nowitzki, welcome to the club. That’s the club of star players who have gotten a warning from the league about flopping. Nowitzki earned his in the third quarter of the Mavericks’ loss to Denver Monday night, when Darrell Arthur closed out and contested the jumper and Nowitzki fell like he was reenacting the Kennedy…

  24. NBA All-Star balloting opens with some interesting questions

    Nov 15, 2013, 4:56 PM EDT

    Kobe Bryant

    If he doesn’t come back until December, is Kobe Bryant still a starting All-Star guard in the West? Or should Stephen Curry or James Harden have that spot? Does Kevin Love move past Tim Duncan into the starting lineup? Is Paul George a starter in the East? Is it time for a Derrick Rose/Kyrie Irving…
