Dion Waiters has apparently been one step ahead of everyone. Before LeBron James announced his return to Northeast Ohio, the King made a phone call to Cavs’ shooting guard Dion Waiters. In a piece by Mike Sieleski of Philly.com, Waiters says that while traveling to the West Coast to work out with pro basketball trainer Rob McClanaghan his phone rang and LeBron
Flexibility is typically a benefit, but the Cleveland Cavaliers’ current options could prove to make Dion Waiters’ goal of being the team’s starting shooting guard a bit difficult. Waiters’ desires are well known by this point, and while Andrew Wiggins may very well be on his way out, but Cavs have added Mike Miller and could very
Let’s talk about age. The Cavaliers are reportedly close to signing 36-year-old Shawn Marion. This is on top of the official signings of 34-year-old Mike Miller and 33-year-old James Jones. And the recent trade for 34-year-old Brendan Haywood. And the possible signing of 39-year-old Ray Allen. Suddenly, the Cavs look kinda old, no? Oh well.
As the Cleveland Cavaliers continue talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves about acquiring disgruntled power forward Kevin Love, one of the players who could potentially be dealt is reiterating that he wants his role to be as a starter. In an interview with CSNSW’s Chris Haynes, Waiters stated that not only does he want to be
The Cleveland Cavaliers reached a deal with veteran sharpshooter Mike Miller, reportedly being ready to sign the 14-year veteran to a two year deal worth around $5.4 million, including a player option for the second year.

And you thought that the Cleveland Cavaliers were done with lightning-rod debates for the summer? No, my friend, they are just getting started. During the four days since LeBron James’ letter, Twitter has been on fire with all sorts of takes on the potential for a trade for Minnesota Timberwolves star Kevin Love. To get a sense
Dion Waiters, oft-criticized Cleveland Cavaliers guard, is on Twitter. A lot. He’ll stay up late at night retweeting his fans and admirers, sharing photoshops and pictures of them wearing his gear. Over the past few days since LeBron James’ announcement, Waiters has been particularly excitable on Twitter. Below are a collection of some of my
One of the best qualities of Waiting For Next Year is the diverse interests of our many writers. After the draft, I asked two of my WFNY colleagues for their take on Andrew Wiggins and his key areas of highlight/criticism going forward. Enjoy. Jacob: All three of us wrote about Wiggins. Kirk, in your film
It’s my day so that means it’s Friday. It was a fun sports week guys, so let’s go! ***** First of all HUGE shoutout to #CavsTwitter who put up with me last night at the draft party. I’m more a part of #BrownsTwitter but it was fun to hang with all the folks I knew
The NBA draft is tonight. It’s finally here. We made it. After months of speculation, the Cavs will actually draft someone with the first overall pick. Or they’ll be the first team in two decades to trade the first pick. You know, either or.

Remember how much fun the playoffs were? From 2005-2010, spring time basketball in Cleveland was fun and exciting.

I got Ben Cox to come on the podcast to discuss the 2014 Cleveland Cavaliers. He dubbed it the season of huh. From the Cavaliers drafting Anthony Bennett, to hiring Mike Brown, to firing Chris Grant to Matthew Dellevedova being the Cavs’ best rookie this year. It was one for the ages. Make sure you
The dumbest press conference ever? – Have you ever seen a press conference where teammates had to stand before the media to tell everyone how good of friends they are? I certainly hadn’t….prior to yesterday: How would Irving describe his relationship with Waiters? “Honestly, off the court and on the court, we’re the best of
Three members of the Cleveland Cavaliers took in an Indians game together on Sunday afternoon. PG Matthew Dellavedova, SG Dion Waiters and C Spencer Hawes sat on the third baseline and enjoyed the game. For the record, Hawes was not afraid to wear Wahoo.

From Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal: “Guys like Josh Gordon
Talk about a boring game. But boring in the best way ever. The Cavaliers were ready to play from the start in this one, and they never let up as they absolutely crushed the Magic by a 119-98 score. This one had a little bit of everything and everyone. Kyrie Irving came back and played
On Wednesday, Dion Waiters comepleted the Cavaliers’ improbable comeback with a last second shot to beat the Pistons in Detroit. The play was Dion’s first game winner and earned him the top spot in the NBA’s top ten plays for the week.
