NBA Free Agency Rumor: Cavs Eyeing PG Jonny Flynn

This sounds familiar. Both in 2010 and then again in March, the Cavs reportedly targeted PG Jonny Flynn, the former Syracuse star who has fizzled thus far in the NBA. Now, today, we’re seeing from the Akron Beacon Journal’s Jason Lloyd that Cleveland again is rumored to target Flynn when free agency begins soon.

For others, the abbreviated season wasn’t really long enough to give a fair evaluation of their skill enhancement, as practice time was at a premium...

For the Portland Trail Blazers, the future should be now

I don't think it's any real surprise that while the coaching staff and management for the Trail Blazers has expressed their desire to compete for a playoff spot, that their chances for reaching that goal seem slim at best. The team has struggled massively with rebounding since the trades of Gerald Wallace and Marcus Camby, and the interior defense has been inconsistent as...

Blazers come home a different team

The Trail Blazers' homecoming after a tumultuous seven-game road trip hardly represented a return to normalcy. While the team got Monday off, the Blazers introduced a pair of new players they acquired at the NBA trade deadline last week, a day that was marked by the dismissal of head coach Nate McMillan.

Rockets Ready to Contend After Making Key Trades

All season long the Houston Rockets have looked like a good team, but one that did not have what it would take to make it deep into the post season (assuming they are able to make it there).
