Cleveland Cavaliers

  1. Top Cavalier picks decide to continue college courses rather than go overseas

    Aug 29, 2011, 3:04 PM EDT

    Hampton v Duke

    According to Scott Sargent of Waiting For Next Year, the Cavaliers’ top two picks have chosen to stay on their respective college campuses for now rather than go overseas in search of a payday. Here’s the story: “Just picked out my classes for this fall,” tweeted one Kyrie Irving, first overall pick in the 2011…

  2. Report: Casspi now eyeing Tony Parker’s team in France

    Omri Casspi is not going to Israel if he plays overseas during he lockout. Which is kind of surprising but talks with Maccabi Tel Aviv (where he would team up with Jordan Farmar) fell through over money and now the Cavalier’s forward looking around at other options. Like teaming up with Tony Parker in France,…

  3. Report: Cavaliers want to retire Zydrunas Ilgauskas’ number

    Aug 22, 2011, 1:32 PM EDT

    When Zydrunas Ilgauskas — one of the most beloved players in Cleveland Cavaliers history — followed LeBron James to Miami, there was not any of the same animosity. In fact, they still want to honor the Lithuanian big man who spent 13 seasons with the Cavaliers by retiring his jersey. That’s the report from lithuaniabasketball.com.…

  4. LeBron says week after finals loss was worst he ever had

    Aug 22, 2011, 10:17 AM EDT

    Dallas Mavericks v Miami Heat - Game Six

    A Miami Heat team in it’s first season together went all the way to the NBA finals before losing to a Dallas Mavericks team that found it’s stride after years together. That chemistry was part of the difference in that series. Watching the Heat lose was something fans everywhere and Kevin Love savored. You should…

  5. Report: Omri Casspi near deal with Maccabi Tel Aviv

    Aug 15, 2011, 9:18 AM EDT

    omri-casspi-sacramento-kings-125-million

    While most of the major teams of Europe — the EuroLeague level teams — have shied away from signing NBA players Maccabi Tel Aviv has been the exception. They already signed Jordan Farmar and now Omri Casspi is reportedly set to return to the team. The Cavaliers forward played for the Israeli club before coming…

  6. Update: Casspi pulls muscle during practice, may miss Eurobasket

    Aug 10, 2011, 7:12 PM EDT

    Omri Casspi

    UPDATE 7:12 pm: This was a knee injury, not a pulled muscle as first described, and because of that Israel’s Omri Casspi may miss EuroBasket. Which pretty much dooms the country’s already long-shot chances. He says it will take six weeks to heal, but EuroBasket starts at the end of August. It didn’t sound like…

  7. For all your obscure NBA trivia wall hanging needs, the Nick Gilbert fathead

    Jul 16, 2011, 11:00 AM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    This is weird. I’m sorry, it is. It’s just really odd to see the 14-year-old son of an NBA owner who was considered to be the good luck charm for the Cleveland Cavaliers in the 2011 NBA Lottery as a FatHead. It’s just peculiar. But there it is. Right there. On the screen   All…

  8. No. 1 pick Irving signs with Nike

    Jul 15, 2011, 7:14 PM EDT

    Irving stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    From Irving’s twitter feed: Feels good to officially be apart of @nikebasketball! Can’t wait to meet all the family I’m going to be apart of.Dreams really do come true! Irving was drafted #1 overall by the Cavaliers after having a stellar season at Duke, albeit one cut short by injury. Nike needs no introduction —…

  9. While supplies last: Decorate your walls with the life-size image of Dan Gilbert’s son!

    Jul 15, 2011, 6:17 PM EDT

    Screen shot 2011-07-15 at 5.05.03 PM

    The fact that Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert also happens to own Fathead, monopolizers of the vinyl wall decal industry, became NBA relevant last summer. As you may recall, Gilbert marked down the price of all LeBron James decals immediately after he chose to leave the Cavs, and worked in a Benedict Arnold zing in…

  10. LeBron’s former teammate sees two sides of the man

    Jul 12, 2011, 4:05 PM EDT

    lance_allred

    Lance Allred is one of the more interesting guys in the NBA — legally deaf (and a very good lip reader), raised Mormon, in his youth part of a polygamous sect (that he and his family have renounced) and one of those people who has been in the NBA but comes with a broader perspective…

  11. Jim Gray talks “Decision,” says LeBron did not pay him

    Jul 8, 2011, 3:02 PM EDT

    Image (1) lebron_decision-thumb-250x191-15508.jpg for post 6206

    On the one-year anniversary of The Decision, LeBron’s interviewer Jim Gray sounded like others close to the production of the event — they don’t understand all the backlash. Gray went on the Dan Patrick Show (see the video below) and, as reported by CSN Chicago, and first he wanted to clear up the rumor he…

  12. One year ago today, LeBron made “The Decision”

    Jul 8, 2011, 8:05 AM EDT

    Image (1) lebron_decision-thumb-250x191-15508.jpg for post 6206

    It someday may go down with the most legendary player moves in NBA history — Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to the Lakers, Dirk Nowitzki to the Mavs (on draft night for Tractor Traylor), and the Celtics turning Joe Barry Carroll into Kevin McHale and Robert Parrish. One year ago today, LeBron James told Jim Gray and the…

  13. Cavaliers buy D-League team; league affiliations announced

    Jul 7, 2011, 5:08 PM EDT

    Image (1) D-league-thumb-250x256-12043.gif for post 2083

    Next season, whether or not we have NBA games, we will have D-League games. (Some of which you can see on Versus, just to do an in-house plug.) And there will be D-League games in Canton, Ohio, because the Cleveland Cavaliers have purchased the D-League team in New Mexico Thunderbirds and will be moving them…

  14. Kyrie Irving already had to file police report against twitter stalker

    Jul 5, 2011, 1:31 PM EDT

    Irving stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    Hey Kyrie Irving, welcome to the NBA. Not the playing basketball part of the NBA, you don’t get to do that until Billy Hunter and David Stern come to an understanding. No, we mean the unwanted attention part of the equation. Rumors had circulated that a woman — Jessica Jackson, who goes by “Miss Hawaii”…

  15. Report sees fans in San Antonio, Boston quick to return after lockout

    Jul 4, 2011, 2:00 PM EDT

    San Antonio Spurs NBA Championship Parade

    Let’s say the lockout does end up costing part of a season, we have already talked about how a league that has picked up so much momentum with casual fans will be kicking that to the curb and have a lot of rebuilding to do with fan bases. But which teams will bounce back quickest.…

  16. Report: Spurs, Knicks called Cavaliers about Casspi

    Jul 4, 2011, 11:01 AM EDT

    Omri Casspi

    The only really interesting pre-lockout trade in the NBA was the Cavaliers sending J.J. Hickson to the Sacramento Kings for Omri Casspi and a future pick (likely first rounder but there are a number of protections on it). Generally, it is thought the Kings won that trade (they got the better player). But there is…

  17. Jamison says players more unified than last lockout

    Jul 1, 2011, 8:44 AM EDT

    Antawn Jamison

    This lockout is going to end when the two sides decide the pain of taking the deal on the table is less than the pain of the lockout. That pain just gets worse as things go along (especially if games, and with it revenue and paychecks, are lost). That is particularly true of the players.…

  18. Cleveland open to making another deal before the lockout officially begins

    Jun 30, 2011, 8:08 PM EDT

    0110-chris-grant-300

    At midnight tonight (or tomorrow, if you really want to be difficult), the NBA world as we know it will come to a grinding halt. Contact between players and teams will be reduced solely to a negotiative process that will determine the league’s short and long-term future, and all of the other off-season festivities —…

  19. Cavaliers exercise team option on Eyenga

    Jun 29, 2011, 8:04 PM EDT

    EYENGA_CHRISTIAN

    From the AP: CLEVELAND (AP) – The Cleveland Cavaliers have exercised their third-year contract option on swingman Christian Eyenga. Eyenga, who averaged 6.9 points as a rookie last season, is under contract with the Cavs through the 2012-13 season. In 44 games last season, the Congo native averaged 2.8 rebounds and 21.5 minutes in 44…

  20. Three biggest surprises of the NBA Draft

    Jun 24, 2011, 10:02 PM EDT

    Tristan Thompson

    There are always a few surprises, like that guy you drafted you thought was 21 turns out to be 26. Funny, but really that mistake by the Timberwolves was moot because Tanguy Ngombo was never going to play in the NBA. But there were some surprises when the picks still mattered. Here are the three…

  21. Sargent: Ryan Hollins picks up player option

    Jun 24, 2011, 7:22 PM EDT

    HOLLINS_RYAN

    This comes from Waiting For Next Year’s Scott Sargent: Source tells WFNY that Ryan Hollins has picked up his $2.5mm player option and will be with the #Cavs next season. The 7-foot Hollins appeared in 70 games for the Cavaliers last season, and averaged 5.3 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 2.8 fouls  in 17 minutes per game. The…

  22. NBA Draft grades for all 30 teams (yes, we know it is too early)

    Jun 24, 2011, 2:59 AM EDT

    Irving stands with NBA Commissioner Stern after being selected by the Cavaliers as the first overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft in Newark

    Let’s be honest here, we don’t really know how to grade this draft right now. A more accurate way to do this would be to grade the 2008 draft tonight (Chicago for Derrick Rose and Seattle/Oklahoma City for Russell Westbrook/Serge Ibaka get the top grades). But we are a society of instant answers, and who…

  23. NBA Draft: PBT’s pick-by-pick draft post

    Jun 23, 2011, 11:45 PM EDT

    Michigan v Duke

    This has been one of the most unusual run ups to a draft in years. Traditionally the top shakes out pretty clearly, but in this draft there is no franchise cornerstone player at the top, and by pick three there are serious risks with every guy a team might take. Meanwhile, concern over what is…

  24. Wojnarowski: Cavs looking to get 3rd 1st-round pick

    Jun 23, 2011, 3:09 PM EDT

    Dan Gilbert

    Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski with an interesting draft rumor: Cleveland’s trying to get a 3rd first round pick — in the 20’s — dangling its two second rounders (32 and 54) and maybe cash, sources say. There had been rumors that the Cavs had been trying get a 3rd 1st round pick by trading down…

  25. Starting with Cavaliers at No. 4, draft will mean hard choices

    Jun 23, 2011, 1:07 PM EDT

    Lietuvos Rytas's Jonas Valanciunas (C) j

    For all the chatter otherwise, it would be stunning not to see Kyrie Irving not go No. 1 and Derrick Williams No. 2. We may well have stunning, it’s been that kind of NBA season, but you might not want to bet on it. As we said before, the draft gets interesting when the Jazz…
