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

  2. Report: Cavaliers want to swing Kevin Love trade if LeBron James comes to town

    Jul 9, 2014, 6:07 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    It’s a real long shot, but if the Cavs actually land LeBron they should swing for the fences.

  3. LeBron James’ seven most likely landing spots, which starts with Miami

    Jun 24, 2014, 11:48 AM EDT

    Utah Jazz v Miami Heat

    The Bulls, Clippers, Lakers are on the list. The Knicks are not.

  4. Report: Kevin Love doesn’t want to play for the Cavaliers

    Jun 8, 2014, 6:30 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    Cleveland, with No. 1 pick to dangle, reportedly has interest in him

  5. Cavaliers GM was getting trade calls before he even got off television

    May 21, 2014, 9:00 PM EDT

    David Griffin

    A lot of teams would love the Cavaliers’ top pick. Giving up enough to get it is another question.

  6. Lottery hands Cleveland Cavaliers No. 1 pick in NBA Draft. Again.

    May 20, 2014, 8:41 PM EDT

    David Griffin Cleveland Cavaliers Draft lottery

    That’s three times since LeBron James left Cleveland it has won the lottery. That’s a lot of Karma.

  7. Report: Cavaliers in negotiations to remove interim from GM David Griffin’s title

    May 10, 2014, 10:36 PM EDT

    David Griffin

    This isn’t a surprise, Griffin was considered a front runner. Once this is decided the Cavs need to decide about coach Mike Brown.

  8. Cavaliers Anthony Bennett out three weeks with knee injury

    Mar 10, 2014, 4:05 PM EDT

    Mike Brown, Anthony Bennett

    As if his season hasn’t been a big enough disappointment, Cleveland’s No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett will miss at least 10 games with a knee strain.

  9. Wednesday night NBA grades: How about that Kyrie Irving?

    Feb 27, 2014, 4:05 AM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while you and your friends debated canned vs. bottled beer…. Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers. He wasn’t in attack mode, he was in seek-and-destroy mode. With Dion Waiters and basically everyone who can shoot outside 15 feet injured he knows he has to be the man…

  10. It’s official: Cleveland Cavaliers fire GM Chris Grant

    Feb 6, 2014, 2:07 PM EDT

    0110-chris-grant-300

    UPDATE 2:07 p.m.: The Cleveland Cavaliers have confirmed the report, they have fired general manager Chris Grant. David Griffin, who had been an assistant to Grant, will step in as the interim GM. “This has been a very difficult period for the franchise,” Owner Dan Gilbert said in a released statement. “We have severely underperformed against…

  11. Thursday night NBA grades: Goran Dragic would like the coaches to snub this

    Jan 31, 2014, 2:50 AM EDT

    Phoenix Suns  v Indiana Pacers

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while wondering if you can get a beer delivery by drone while off in some remote spot…. Goran Dragic, Phoenix Suns. Just as he was taking the court he found out he was snubbed from the All-Star Game (although smart money is he gets in…

  12. J.R. Smith broke Tristan Thompson’s ankles with stepback crossover (VIDEO)

    Jan 30, 2014, 10:52 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v New York Knicks

    That’s about as bad as you’re going to see a guy get burned by a crossover. That move also pretty much sums up how this game went for the Knicks and Cavaliers. New York’s J.R. Smith was driving to his right with Cleveland’s Tristan Thompson on him when Smith pulled out a stepback crossover —…

  13. Cavaliers GM Chris Grant rips team for “lack of effort”

    Jan 30, 2014, 1:39 PM EDT

    Brooklyn Nets v Cleveland Cavaliers

    I imagine Chris Grant’s seat is feeling a little warm. He’s the general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers, a team that has been awash in high draft picks in recent years — including last season’s No. 1, used on Anthony Bennett — who was told by his owner publicly it’s time to start making the…

  14. Cleveland Cavaliers beat writers try, survive cryotherapy

    Jan 20, 2014, 12:41 PM EDT

    Indiana Pacers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    NBA players are increasingly using cryotherapy, but to most of us, the actual process is a mystery. All I knew, thanks to the pain and suffering of Manny Harris, is not to wear wet socks during treatment. Otherwise, I was at a loss. But while covering the Cleveland Cavaliers on the West Coast, Mary Schmitt…

  15. 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…

  16. Anthony Bennett working on ignoring criticism, finding his game

    Dec 31, 2013, 12:57 PM EDT

    Golden State Warriors v Cleveland Cavaliers

    In a historically bad season for a No. 1 overall pick, Anthony Bennett is trying to measure his progress. Since the Andrew Bynum suspension he is getting 15 minutes a night. If you want some positives look at it this way: In his first 10 games he averaged 1.3 points a game on 13.5 percent…

  17. Cavs’ Dion Waiters out Friday night (and maybe longer) with sore wrist

    Dec 20, 2013, 7:28 PM EDT

    Dion Waiters

    Dion Waiters — the Cavaliers second-leading scorer and a guy on the trade block according to reports — will be out Friday night against the Bucks and maybe longer due to a sore wrist. He has wrist tendonitis that had bothered him for a while but he had played through it — he had 25…

  18. Report: Dion Waiters accused Kyrie Irving, Tristan Thompson of playing “buddy ball.”

    Nov 28, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Cleveland Cavaliers v Los Angeles Clippers

    We knew that a couple of weeks ago after another ugly loss (29 points to the Timberwolves), the Cavaliers had a team meeting and in it things got a little tense — shouting, but not fisticuffs. Not long after, Dion Waiters lost his starting spot to Matthew Dellavedova, which made sense as Waiters is shooting…

  19. Report: Cavaliers testing trade market for Dion Waiters

    Nov 27, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT

    Dion Waiters

    Well, that didn’t even take two seasons. Apparently the Cleveland Cavaliers are considering moving on from the Kyrie Irving/Dion Waiters backcourt of the future, and you can be sure Irving isn’t the one going out the door. Which leads us to this tweet from Chris Broussard of ESPN: Sources: Cavs shopping Dion Waiters. They've spoken…

  20. Cavaliers’ fans boo No. 1 pick Anthony Bennett. Really Cleveland?

    Nov 21, 2013, 11:42 AM EDT

    Anthony Bennett

    Cavaliers’ fans have a right to be frustrated. Owner Dan Gilbert pumped up this team and the fan base talking playoffs yet they are 4-8 to start the season with the second worst offense in the NBA (94.1 points per 100 possessions). They look like a lottery team. Again. They look like a team searching…

  21. 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…

  22. Anderson Varejao says he expects Mike Brown to limit his minutes

    Oct 28, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Anderson Varejao

    The Cleveland Cavaliers are going to be without Andrew Bynum until… I’m no even going to take a guess here. Theoretically someday he returns. Yes, he practiced with the team and has done some 5-on-5 work, until he suits up and walks on the court I’m not playing your game. Until that magical day, at…
