INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — LeBron James could sign a five-year, $209 million deal with the Cavs if he chooses come the summer of 2018, thanks to the new, tentative labor agreement between the NBA and its players.

It would be more money than any other team could pay him. James couldn’t have done that — sign for five more years and that much money — under the current rules.

The rule change could make James an extra $90 million – $109 million over the life of his next contract, with the final year worth $50 million alone.

Again, if he chooses to sign with the Cavs. – CLICK HERE to read full story.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — Not everything that happens in Las Vegas stays there.

Cavs coach Tyronn Lue said he has a relationship with former Cleveland player and first-year Lakers coach Luke Walton, and it revolves around “craps table No. 6” at undisclosed Vegas casinos.

The two apparently meet at the same table every night during the annual NBA Summer League tournament out there to toss some dice.

“Every night at nine o’clock,” Lue said Friday after Cavs practice. Lue will see Walton Saturday when Cleveland hosts the Lakers at 7:30 p.m. – CLICK HERE to read full story.

INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — With the Los Angeles Lakers coming to Quicken Loans Arena Saturday, their only trip to Cleveland this season, a special moment will take place prior to tipoff.

Former Cavaliers big man Timofey Mozgov will receive his NBA championship ring.

“He’s one of my favorite guys,” Cavs head coach Tyronn Lue said following Friday’s practice. “For a guy to be a starter and play such a big role and have an impact on our team the way he did two years ago and then in the playoffs last year not being able to play, but he was the first guy off the bench cheering, running onto the floor, jumping up and down when guys hit threes, you just love to have guys on your team like that. We miss him around here.”

The Cavs acquired Mozgov on Jan. 7, 2015 for a pair of first-round picks, ending their months-long search for a coveted rim protector. – CLICK HERE to read full story.
