Cavs mailbag: Offseason priorities, goals for next season and revisiting Anthony Bennett

After Kyrie, who on the current roster will be the biggest priority to keep? @thatguy5000 That depends on your taste. Spencer Hawes is high on the list, but I’ve heard rumblings he wants to play on the West Coast. Don’t they all? Since there are only a handful of teams and a select number of spots, he could be back if that falls through. Luol Deng isn’t expected back and the Cavs will have to make a decision regarding Tristan Thompson, who is also up for an extension this summer. If they don’t want to pay what he’ll be asking, they may have to at least explore trading him this...

Bulls are better without Luol Deng

JOE COWLEY: First, there’s a slight pause. There’s always that slight pause. Then the reply comes with a preface, something along the lines of: “We all love Luol . . .’’

Bulls have become a better team since trading Luol Deng

First, there’s a slight pause. There’s always that slight pause. Then the reply comes with a preface, something along the lines of: “We all love Luol . . .’’ Followed by a ubiquitous “but’’ before an attempted vague explanation. That’s how the Bulls handle being asked about life without Luol Deng these days and becoming a better team without him. Deng, a two-time All-Star, was traded Jan. 7 to the Cleveland Cavaliers, and words such as...

Hawks 117, Cavs 98; Jason Lloyd's final thoughts

ATLANTA: Nineteen thoughts for 19 Dion Waiters shots following a terrible 117-98 loss in a game that effectively ended the Cavs’ postseason hopes… 1. Mike Brown saw it. Luol Deng saw it. Unfortunately, the guys they were talking about apparently didn’t see it, feel it or hear it. 2. Brown thought the offense was as bad Friday as it has been in two months – or more – because of the stagnant offense. “The ball movement was very, very, very limited for us,” Brown said. 3. Deng was even more direct. “We have a lot of good players, a lot of individuals who could take over...

Thibs to Tony Snell: Play defense and make shots

ATLANTA — Tony Snell looked like a playoff-rotation performer when the Bulls were re-establishing themselves as contenders in the wake of Derrick Rose’s injury and Luol Deng’s departure. But he’s going to have to re-earn that role. The 6-7 guard from New Mexico, who started 12 games in the first half of the season and averaged seven points in 22 minutes in a 12-game stretch after Deng was traded, has become a bit player as the Bulls head to the finish of the...

Blazers’ coach compares Tom Thibodeau’s Bulls to Spurs

Tom Thibodeau isn’t really concerned about peer reviews, but Trail Blazers coach Terry Stotts all but put him on a pedestal Friday. “From the outside looking in, Thibodeau has done a tremendous job of keeping the ship going in the same direction,’’ Stotts said when asked about the Bulls playing at a high level without Derrick Rose or Luol Deng. “They’ve established a culture here, and in some ways like San Antonio, the parts change, but they just keep...
