Ty Lue: Kyle Korver will come off the bench for the Cavs, DeAndre Liggins to start

Ty Lue: Kyle Korver will come off the bench for the Cavs, DeAndre Liggins to start

Liggins has made quite the impression DeAndre Liggins wasn’t in the NBA at this time a season ago. Thanks to his skillset and performance, he will now be starting at shooting guard over Kyle Korver for the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers. Liggins was thrust into a starting role with the hand injury to J.R. Smith, and has been a great fit in the starting lineup. For now he’s making enough threes to keep himself on the court, and playing good to very good defense. He’s been good enough that at least for now, newly acquired Kyle Korver will not slide into J.R. Smith’s starting...

Instant trade analysis: How does Kyle Korver fit with the Cleveland Cavaliers?

Instant trade analysis: How does Kyle Korver fit with the Cleveland Cavaliers?

With J.R. Smith out until April, the Cavs pick up a needed shooter So the Cleveland Cavaliers love shooting. I mean, they REALLY love shooting. They employ Kyrie Irving. They have Channing Frye. They are patiently waiting the return of marksman J.R. Smith. Kevin Love is hitting at a career high clip from deep. They swung on Mike Dunleavy, for reasons you can probably imagine (shooting). Even LeBron James has his shot back. This is America though, and the rich get richer: enter Kyle Korver. On its face, Kyle Korver’s fit on a team with the league’s foremost locator of open three point...

Report: Cavs finalizing deal with Atlanta Hawks for Kyle Korver

Report: Cavs finalizing deal with Atlanta Hawks for Kyle Korver

David Griffin comes through in a big way With J.R. Smith out for an extended time and the Cavs lacking serious depth, General Manager David Griffin faced a serious challenge: find a real piece, and find one fast. He appears to be on the verge of doing just that. Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports with Shams Charania that the Cavs are finalizing a deal for sharp-shooter Kyle Korver. Korver will likely immediately slide into the starting lineup for the Cavs, where his shooting will make the Cavs ridiculously hard to guard. He might go to the bench when Smith comes back, but Korver...

Final Score: Without Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, Cavs come up short against Bulls

Final Score: Without Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love, Cavs come up short against Bulls

Despite a strong start, the short-handed Cavs come up short The Cleveland Cavaliers were without Kyrie Irving for the third straight game on Wednesday night against the Chicago Bulls due to a hamstring injury. Kevin Love missed the game with illness after struggling through Monday’s tilt with the Pelicans. J.R. Smith, of course, has been out for some time now. It all caught up to the team during their date with the Bulls. After the Cavs jumped out to a big early lead, the Chicago Bulls came storming back with uncharacteristic three point shooting. They never looked back. The Chicago...
