Report: Shawn Marion agrees to join Cavaliers


The Cavaliers’ wild and amazing summer just keeps on rolling. The latest development is that veteran Shawn Marion has agreed to join the wine and gold, according to ESPN’s Marc Stein. Unless the Mavericks agree to a sign-and-trade deal, Marion will be on board for the veteran minimum. Marion joins an incredibly deep and talented


Tribe blasted by Reds for second straight night

The Battle of Ohio packed up and headed from Cleveland to Cincinnati last night. The Reds carried over their “big homers from non-homer hitters” act, and the Indians were silent with the bats until the eighth inning when it was far too late. When it looked like the Indians might just dip their toes into


Supporting cast, contract confidence yields Wiggins-Love answer

NBA: Minnesota Timberwolves at New Orleans Pelicans

Kevin Love. Andrew Wiggins. It’s been exhausting, and we’re looking at four more weeks of it as the No.1 overall pick’s contract clock ticks. Granted, it’s not “LeBron James” exhausting. It’s more nervous excitement. The Cavaliers are going to have three REALLY good players one way or another. I’ve been quite outspoken in my desire


Report: Cavs could host Spurs on NBA’s Opening Night

Danny Green

There has been plenty of discussion about when and where the Cavaliers will have some high-profile matchups on national television, something that’s been sorely lacking for the last four seasons. There’s no doubt that LeBron’s return to Miami will be one of those signature games, but that’s more likely to be on the Christmas Day


LeBron James will return to wearing No. 23


After much debate that included the numbers 23, 6, and 32, and an Instagram post where James asked fans “23 or 6?” nine days ago, LeBron James has, err, decided. James will return to the number 23, which he wore for all seven seasons in Cleveland. James changed to No. 6 when he left Cleveland


Cavaliers take first two in Las Vegas Summer League

The Cavaliers summer league team played two games over the weekend in Las Vegas. On Friday night, they beat the Milwaukee Bucks 70-68 in a one-versus-two matchup of the 2014 NBA Draft. Yesterday, they topped the Spurs by a 82-70 count. There was plenty to be pleased with for wine and gold fans. For years, the


LeBron James agrees to two-year deal in anticipation of max increase


Brian Windhorst of ESPN came out with the contract details for returning forward LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers this afternoon. James will sign just a two-year contract for $42.1 million with the option of opting out next summer. The structure of this deal allows James to capitalize on the expected jump of the salary


A monarchy restored, but the subjects never left

LeBron's back

I spent nearly four years holding onto a lot of hard feelings when it came to LeBron James. A lot of us did. The first year could only be described as raw and open wound hatred. The second year, culminating with LeBron’s first championship, was acceptance. What Cleveland had been resisting had happened, and even


Bourn to DL, Tyler Holt called up


The Indians won in impressive fashion last night 7-3 over the Kansas City Royals, but it came at a cost. Michael Bourn left the game in the eighth inning after scoring and having his hamstring apparently tighten up on him. Sure enough, we heard the news today that Bourn will be headed to the disabled


Woj: Cavs shopping pick and Jarrett Jack to clear cap space


We talked a little bit about the Cavaliers’ cap space last night when it was announced that Spencer Hawes was headed to the Clippers. Today, Yahoo’s news-breaking juggernaut Adrian Wojnarowski indicates that the Cavaliers and Rockets are working out deals to generate space to offer a full-max to LeBron James. Meanwhile, Rockets, Cavs pushing closer


Clippers agree to terms with Spencer Hawes


The second of three Cavalier free agents that the team is not expected to re-sign agreed to terms yesterday. After C.J. Miles agreed to terms with the Indiana Pacers on a four-year deal, former Cavaliers center Spencer Hawes signed with the Los Angeles Clippers. The deal will pay Hawes $23 million dollars over four years,


For Cavs, the time to spend is now

david griffin

The Cavaliers have already had one heck of an offseason. They drafted Andrew Wiggins with the first pick and signed Kyrie Irving to a max extension. Those two moves alone have set them up to be relevant for hopefully the next 5-6 years. But, what about another big splash this offseason? Twenty-four hours ago when


Trade Down For What?! Embiid, Exum, and Extra Assets Are Too Risky


It’s that blaring sound in your head, the noise that just won’t go away. Everywhere you go, every swipe of your thumb down your Twitter app of choice, it’s there, brandishing an intensely uncomfortable cacophony. You don’t know why it’s popular, but you know you want it dismissed as an afterthought as soon as possible.


Cavalier NBA Draft Film Room: Andrew Wiggins


In my second of three NBA Draft options for the Cavaliers with the top pick, I take a look at Kansas forward Andrew Wiggins. Last week, I analyzed film for Duke forward Jabari Parker, who impressed me immensely with his diverse offensive package. Next week, stay tuned for a breakdown of Kansas center Joel Embiid. Wiggins


Cavaliers to interview Mark Price for head coaching position


After a whirlwind day for Cavaliers fans from all the John Calipari talk, Dan Gilbert and David Griffin won some brownie points with a large portion of the fan base. Mary Schmitt Boyer of The Plain Dealer is reporting that the Cavaliers will interview former Cavalier point guard Mark Price for the head coaching position tomorrow.


Cavalier NBA Draft Film Room: Jabari Parker


In the first of a trio of film room breakdowns, I begin my analysis of the most likely selections for the Cavaliers’ top pick on June 26. Leading off, we will dive into some analysis of Duke forward Jabari Parker. Parker is often hailed as the most offensive-ready talent over Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid. However,


Report: Cavs interested in David Blatt, Gentry in for second interview

We heard that there was at least one candidate for the Cavaliers head coaching position that was not being discussed. Well, he may be the one being discussed after today. Several reports, including one from The Plain Dealer’s Mary Schmitt Boyer, indicate that the Cavaliers may be looking overseas for their next head coach. An


Indians activate Santana, send down Aguilar

Carlos Santana

The Indians welcomed Carlos Santana back to the active roster this evening following a stay on the 7-day concussion disabled list. Santana was catching when he was struck with a foul ball on Memorial Day against the White Sox that sidelined him. He returns to the lineup batting eighth as the designated hitter with Mike


Report: Josh Gordon gets speeding ticket, passenger cited with marijuana


Josh Gordon just can’t keep his name out of the spotlight for negative reasons. This time, Gordon was cited for speeding in Strongsville over Memorial Day weekend. Meanwhile, his passenger was cited for possession of marijuana, according to WKYC. “According to the citation, Gordon’s 2014 grey Mercedes-Benz SUV was clocked going 74 miles an hour in


Top pick trade talk, Film Room prelude, and more head coach candidates


“This is insane.” Ben Cox said it best, sitting next to me at Barrio in Lakewood on that Tuesday night last week, a mountain of tacos and a couple of mason jars of brew between us. I still don’t think it’s sunk in that the Cavaliers, after being fortunate enough to pluck the one elite
