  1. Report: Warriors among teams interested in trading for Kirk Hinrich

    Jan 7, 2014, 5:42 PM EST

    Kirk Hinrich

    It would be a mistake to use the word “tank” with any Tom Thibodeau coached team, because he would not allow his teams to roll over like that. However, with the trade of Luol Deng it is clear Bulls management has moved on from trying to win this year (they brought the band back to…

    Jan 7, 2014, 4:23 PM EST

    Bynum Cavaliers

    Today was essentially cut-down day in the NBA. Any player on the roster come Jan. 10 has his contract guaranteed for the full season (even if he is let go), and as it takes 48 hours to clear waivers players have to be let go of Tuesday (5 ET) to make that deadline. There were…

  3. Luol Deng-Andrew Bynum trade could backfire on both Chicago Bulls and Cleveland Cavaliers in short term

    Jan 7, 2014, 1:15 PM EST

    Luol Deng, Alonzo Gee

    The Luol Deng-Andrew Bynum trade signaled two teams hoping to go opposite directions in the short term. The Cavaliers clearly want to make the playoffs. Dan Gilbert has said so, and the franchise’s moves reflect that goal. I wouldn’t go as far as saying the Bulls clearly want to miss the playoffs, but when you…

    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.

    Golden State Warriors v Phoenix Suns

    The top two teams in the East are the top two teams on PBT’s Power Rankings, but with their current nine-game win streak Golden State has moved in as the top ranked team in the West.

  9. Gasol-Bynum trade talks update: Talks reportedly on hold as Lakers, Cavaliers can’t make deal work

    Jan 6, 2014, 12:10 AM EST

    Bynum Cavaliers

    Don’t be shocked if word comes down Monday at that Andrew Bynum is on his way to the Utah Jazz. Or maybe the Cavaliers just decide to hold on to Bynum for a day then waive him themselves on Tuesday. That’s because the much-discussed Bynum to the Los Angeles Lakers for Pau Gasol talks have…

  10. Gasol-Bynum trade talks update: Cavs reportedly unwilling to include Dion Waiters

    dion waiters

    Talks remain ongoing between the Lakers and the Cavaliers about a trade involving Pau Gasol and Andrew Bynum. And with Cleveland under a deadline of sorts to get a deal done before Bynum’s contract becomes fully guaranteed Jan. 7, it’s not surprising that L.A. is sticking to its guns in terms of wanting an asset…

    Jan 4, 2014, 12:30 PM EST

    Utah Jazz v Charlotte Bobcats

    At some time Monday the Cleveland Cavaliers are going to make a move, trading Andrew Bynum to a team that will turn around and waive him in the next 24-hours, saving themselves $6 million. The only question is who is coming back to Cleveland. The answer may be veteran swingman Richard Jefferson of the Utah…

    Orlando Magic v Dallas Mavericks

    UPDATE 6:09 pm: And it’s official, the Orlando Magic have waived Hedo Turkoglu. No team is going to claim him off waivers and pick up the $6 million he is owed. It is possible he gets a minimum deal, more likely he gets a 10 day contract soon. 4:04 pm: So much for trying to…

So Monday the Cavaliers are going to trade him. That’s the plan reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. Cavs mulling…

    Jan 3, 2014, 4:34 PM EST

    Kyrie Irving

    The Cavaliers are 1-0 without Kyrie Irving. Granted, they had to come back from 9 points down in the final minute — which required a lot of help from the Orlando Magic — but they won with Irving on the bench. Now they are going to go for 2-0. Irving will be out again Saturday…

    Jan 2, 2014, 2:13 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Utah Jazz, - Game 4

    While the idea of former teammates Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol being traded for each other had some “what a quirky coincidence” fun about it, the odds of making a deal really work for both sides always was a tough sell. Which is why trade talks between the Lakers and Cavaliers have stalled, reports ESPN.…

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Boston Celtics

    Finally, some good injury news. An MRI revealed Cleveland’s Kyrie Irving has only a knee contusion and he is officially day-to-day, reports Brian Windhorst of ESPN.
