NBA Rumor: Cavs wanted Klay Thompson in 2011

Chris Grant and the Cavaliers were reportedly close to adding a third lottery pick in 2011 in shooting guard Klay Thompson. From Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon-Journal, Grant had multiple deals in place but all of them would fall through for a variety of reasons. Klay Thompson scored 16 points and shot just 5-for-16 Sunday, but how good would he look in a Cavs jersey? It nearly...

Knicks To Keep An Eye On Some Familiar NBA Hopefuls

Just days after waiving training camp invitees Mychel Thompson, Henry Sims, John Shurna, and Oscar Bellfield, the Knicks learned they'll be able to keep a closer eye on three of these same basketball hopefuls as the season progresses. With D-League teams formulating their rosters a bit in time for their own respective training camps, the Erie BayHawks (New York's direct...

Player Spotlight: New York Knicks Mychel Thompson

Mychel Thompson has impressed me a little, but at this level every player has talent. Most of these guys need a chance and this is his. Mychel is 6′ 6″ and 210 pounds and has the size to cover the two and three spot. He will have camp to show the Knicks brass what he has to offer and if his camp does not go well, he most likely will end up back in the D-League or look for...

Cavs at Heat tonight, and a shout out to Mychel Thompson

Kyrie Irving scored 17 points in just under 26 minutes down in Miami during the Cavaliers 7-point loss (92-85) to the Heat on January 24th. At that rate (roughly 0.65 points per minute), if he played 40 minutes, he'd have finished with 26 and the Cavaliers would've won by two. Of course nothing at all about the game would've been different, besides Kyrie simply adding...

Cavs Waive Rookie Mychel Thompson

With all contracts being guaranteed come this Friday and guard Daniel Gibson returning from his bout with an infected neck, the Cavaliers have opted to waive guard-forward Mychel Thompson. Starting three games, Thompson averaged 3.6 points and 1.0 rebound. This move provides Chris Grant with enhanced flexibility as they head into the trade deadline. The team could opt to add another...

Catching Up With Cavs Mychel Thompson After His First NBA Start

The first four points of Cavaliers rookie guard Mychel Thompson's NBA career couldn't have come at a better time. Those first two jumpers he hit proved critical to a 4th quarter comeback win on the road Sunday, capped off by the last second heroics of Kyrie Irving, in what became the Cavs most exciting finish of the season so far. During that one-point win over the Celtics...

On Tristan Thompson, Omri Casspi, And The Wine & Gold Scrimmage Sunday

I thought it was cool of the Cavaliers to offer free admission yesterday for the Wine and Gold scrimmage, and I was also glad they had it down at the Q this season too.  It was a good afternoon of NBA basketball, and below are some takeaways I left with after attending the day's festivities:  Tristan Thompson is an explosive leaper:  Kyrie Irving said yesterday after the...
