One team official scoffed at the notion that center Nikola Pekovic, who is a restricted free agent this summer, could command $12 million/year on the open market. If Pekovic doesn’t get $12 million a year, the hunch is he’ll come close. That makes me wonder, if Kahn can find the right replacement, whether he’ll pull the trigger. That could be Cleveland’s Anderson Varejao. According to two league sources, the Wolves and Cavaliers have had discussions, albeit brief, about Varejao. What’s not known is if Cleveland has any interest in Pekovic. And presumably, it would take a lot more than Pekovic for Kahn to pull off such a deal. via 1500ESPN.com

Irving hits game-winning shot against Bobcats

The Cleveland Cavaliers haven’t been on the average NBA fan’s radar since LeBron took his talents to South Beach three seasons ago. Even though Dan Gilbert lost that bet with himself about the Cavs winning a title before Lebon did, his consolation prize in the following year’s draft was Kyrie Irving. Irving is definitely making [...]

Catching up with Shaun Livingston after his Cavaliers' debut

In an otherwise frustrating loss to a bad team on Wednesday night, Shaun Livingston made his Cleveland Cavaliers debut. He came off the Cavs' bench to play just under 13 minutes, finishing with two points, two rebounds, one assist and a plus/minus of +4 on the night. After the game I caught up with Livingston. [youtube]N9LR9PKzqLs[/youtube] I've talked with Shaun...

CLEVELAND (AP) -- Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao is out for Cleveland's game against Sacramento because of a bruised right knee.

Three New Year's Wishes for Cavs in 2013

Below are my three New Year's wishes for the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2013.  1. Injury-free Kyrie Irving Were Kylie Irving's injuries this past year a fluke? Maybe. A concussion, broken hand, broken finger and a broken jaw; all of those could happen to anyone, really. It's not like he has bad knees or ankles. That's why I don't consider him...

Cavs taught another toughie in defeat

CLEVELAND -- When youre the Cavaliers, youre going to have nights like Saturday. The other team is just more experienced, more cohesive, more sure of who it is and where its going. So you cant really call the Cavs 112-104 home loss to the Houston Rockets anything but part of the learning curve. The Cavs lost to a better team. Period.

Box Score: Cavs 106, Bobcats 104

Maybe Kyrie Irving was reading all of our content today about his inept fourth-quarter performances?
