J.R. Smith: ‘I Just Want to Be Somewhere I Can Make a Difference’

J.R. Smith has been a free agent for what seems like forever. For a player who opted out of his $6.4 million deal for the 2015-16 season, one would think that Smith would have been signed by now. After over a month of free agency, that has not been the case. While it’s been a frustrating situation for both the Cleveland Cavaliers and their streaky shooter, Smith has clarified exactly...

10 Things You Didn’t Know About the Cleveland Cavaliers

For 45 years, the Cleveland Cavaliers have compiled a huge amount of memories, both good and bad, for their fans. Those good memories: two NBA Finals appearances, the “Miracle of Richfield” and the selection of LeBron James in the 2003 NBA Draft are countered with the bad: a forgettable start, the Ted Stepien era and “The Shot.” All of those are etched into the memory banks...

Gilbert Arenas on LeBron: He’s not a No. 1 option

by Josh Poloha Former Washington Wizards guard Gilbert Arenas has not played in a game since 2012 (and is still somehow getting paid, but that’s beside the point), but he still has his fair share of opinions on the NBA. In his latest Instagram post, Arenas decided to talk about Cleveland Cavaliers point-forward LeBron James. At first, he explained how an athlete like James “comes...

Possibilities For The Cleveland Cavaliers Trade Exception

The Cleveland Cavaliers 2015-16 roster is finally coming together after the recent signing of Matthew Dellavedova and trade of Brendan Haywood and Mike Miller to the Portland Trail Blazers for cash.

Cleveland Cavaliers Post Free Agency Power Rankings

Cleveland Cavaliers Power Ranking: 2 See Full Rankings Here Much to my surprise Kevin Love re-signed with the Cavs, but to truly deserve this ranking they will have to find a way to resign Dellavedova, Thompson, and JR Smith (which is doable). Adding Mo Williams was a solid addition as well as keeping Iman Shumpert. Kyrie Irving will be healthy next year and as long as Lebron James...

The Cavs got trade exceptions. So what?

The Cleveland Cavaliers traded Brendan Haywood, Mike Miller, and two future second-round picks to the Portland Trail Blazers Sunday night in exchange for, well, nothing really. They got some cash considerations, but the most impactful part of the return was two trade exceptions. Whereas the Cavs were on the hook for $10.5 million in salary to Haywood and $2.8 million to Miller,...

Could Kaun Make A Difference In Cleveland?

Sasha Kaun might provide depth down low for the Cavaliers in 2015-16. Though it appears a Brendan Haywood trade must happen before any more dominoes start to fall in Cleveland this summer, the Cavs have accomplished a great deal already this off-season. Having signed Mo Williams and Richard Jefferson, Cleveland added two sharpshooting veterans who will give the team a much-needed...
