Circle in March 27, 2018 as the only appearance by the Cavaliers in Miami this season

March 27 may be the only time Heat fans will see Wade and James at AA Arena. Surya Fernandez reported that Dwyane Wade most likely will be a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers when they perform at AA Arena on March 27, 2018. Breaking: Dwyane Wade expected to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers https://t.co/cttkjDfpcZ— Surya Fernandez (@SuryaHeatNBA) September 26, 2017 That marks a turnaround from 2010 when LeBron James and Chris Bosh left their cities to join Wade in Miami.

The Warriors had interest in Dwyane Wade

Golden State checked in on the 12-time All-Star, but talks quickly ended The Chicago Bulls recently bought out the contract of shooting guard Dwyane Wade, and with the season only a few weeks away, he sought to quickly find a new team. After checking in with a few predictable suspects, the 12-time All-Star is set to join good buddy LeBron James, as the newest member of the Cleveland Cavaliers. While it’s not surprising that Wade chose Cleveland, what is surprising is that the Golden State Warriors were interested. Alex Kennedy of HoopsHype reported that the ink had barely dried on...

Hollis-Jefferson talks Africa, leadership, brotherhood and Russell

Externally, the eye will show you that Rondae Hollis-Jefferson has grown out his hair. Internally, the ear will tell you that the longest tenured Brooklyn Net has grown as a person, a leader. Last season was the 22-year-old’s first full NBA campaign after missing much of his 2015-16 rookie season due to injury. The 6’7” combo forward was selected in the latter part of the first round in 2015, and 107 NBA appearances later, he’s the only Net who’s been in Brooklyn for a full two seasons. His play also earned him a spot in the 2017 NBA Africa game among the likes of DeMarcus...

SLAM Magazine gets DeMar DeRozan’s ranking right

Let the record show: this is the approximately correct placement of DeRozan in the league hierarchy. What did we say about NBA rankings? They never end. We’re here again today with a new one to consider, this time from the venerable outlet SLAM Magazine. In their ranking of the top 50 players in the NBA — a countdown that reach number 20 earlier today — we find two Toronto Raptors. As the headline implies, let’s reflect on what SLAM got right: DeMar DeRozan at no. 21. DeRozan’s season last year was the best of his career — all the stats, advanced or otherwise, back this up.

Boston Celtics two-way and camp guys

Kadeem Allen, Jabari Bird, L.J. Peak and Andrew White fight for a roster spot Other entries in the player preview series covered the players most likely to get at least some level of action with the Boston Celtics during the 2017-18 season. But what about the players on two-way contracts or on camp contracts? With the 15th roster spot open, there is a chance one of these players ends up playing minutes for Boston when the lights come on for real in mid-October. Before we get into the players, it is worth taking some time to explain the new two-way contracts, since they are a new addition to...

Mirotic Says Returning To Chicago Was Never In Question

He didn’t even bother looking at other teams this summer Despite his nearly three month hiatus from the Chicago Bulls this summer, Nikola Mirotic knew he wasn’t going anywhere. Mirotic said he always knew he would re-sign with Bulls. Rejected 1st offer but always knew he'd either play on QO or new deal.— K.C. Johnson (@KCJHoop) September 26, 2017 In fact, he was so loyal to the Bulls that he didn’t even bother talking to any other teams about possibly signing for more than the $7.2 million qualifying offer the Bulls extended to him this summer.

Lonzo hasn’t backed down from setting a high bar to clear in his first season in the NBA. The Los Angeles Lakers haven’t seen the playoffs in years, but Lonzo Ball wants to change that during his rookie season. Ball said the team’s goal is making the playoffs back in August, and the No. 2 pick stood by that during his media day availability. “We're focused on making the playoffs. Obviously it's going to be a tough journey, but we're looking forward to it,” Ball said when asked what he’d consider a successful season.

Is Tyson Chandler ready for more rest in 2017-18?

A well-rested Chandler is entering his 17th season playing for the Phoenix Suns. Last season with the Phoenix Suns was one of the best of Tyson Chandler’s career by many measures. He had the third highest rebound per game total (11.5) of his 16 year career and also had his second highest field goal percentage (67.1%) and career best free throw percentage (73.4%). Adjusting for playing time, Tyson actually had a career best 14.9 rebounds per 36 minutes played. If he had qualified for NBA leaders based on minutes played Chandler’s 11.5 rebounds per game would have put him eighth in the...

How will Nick Young fit into the Warriors offense?

The new Warrior is a great shooter, but has been known as a ballhog and chucker in the past. Will he buy into Warriors’ system? At Sunday’s practice, Warriors head coach Steve Kerr implored new addition Nick Young to shoot more. It’s a funny request for one of the most notorious chuckers in recent NBA history, and even more absurd given the Warriors’ egalitarian offense. Young explained that he’s been a little passive during his integration with the team’s offense. It’s already set, and he’s been just trying to fit in. But Nick Young’s jump shot is why he was signed, and...

The players were confident on media day, appearing ready to tackle the Western Conference challenge. A theme quickly emerged on media day: this latest version of the New Orleans Pelicans is a supremely confident bunch. “Obviously I feel like we’re a sleeper and people obviously see the roster that we have and maybe even looked at the past that we’ve had. But we’re ready to go.” — Jrue Holiday The start of every preseason is always filled with optimism around the league. Even mediocre teams feel they have a good chance of exceeding expectations. But that’s what we should expect...
