Waiting For Next Year:
Just a few days after reports circulated surrounding interest in Mirza Teletovic, a 6-foot-9-inch power forward out of Bosnia, the agent of the recently bought-out big man has indicates that his client will likely sign with either the Brooklyn Nets or Cleveland Cavaliers for the 2012-13 season.
Teletovic,26, was the Euroleague’s top regular season scorer, averaging 21.7 points for Vitoria, hitting 3.1 three-point field goals per game (43.1 percent). A traditional volume-type player, the Bosnian’s big weekness to this point has been his defense as he has largely been a perimeter player, averaging only 6.0 rebounds per contest and occasionally being forced out of the paint by larger forwards.
A bit of an undersized front-court player, the 240-pount Teletovic would likely assume the “stretch-four” role in Cleveland, ocassionally slotting down to the small forward when not confronted with a dynamic player opposite him due to the potential for defensive struggles.

The Cleveland Cavaliers, one of the 6 charter teams of the NBA Summer League will once again be participating in the NBA’s summer exhibition league in Las Vegas. This year, the Summer League is up to a record 24 teams participating (23 NBA teams and 1 D-League Select All-Star team).
For those unfamiliar with the D-League, it is a summer showcase for new and recent draft picks as...
The Cavaliers reportedly tried to trade up for the first overall pick in the upcoming draft (Thursday, June 28th). They offered every pick they have this year for it.
Mike Ditka tried that one time. While running the Saints, Ditka traded all of his 1999 draft picks, and a couple more the following year, to Washington in order to get Ricky Williams. It didn’t work out so well for...
I feel like Cleveland Cavaliers fans and Seattle Sonics fans should meet somewhere in the middle (anyone South Dakota know of a really huge sports bar?) and commiserate over the hatred they each feel in this series.
For Sonics fans, it's watching Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook and James Harden potentially win a title that should have been celebrated in the shadows of the...
When word gets out that a player is interested in playing for Cleveland, suddenly, everyone wants him. And it is true that Bosnian forward Mirza Teletovic has been linked to the Cavaliers.
Dont feel bad if you dont know much about Teletovic. Hes spent his entire career playing overseas, mostly in Spain. He also declared for the 2007 NBA Draft -- but didnt get selected.
