“Sessions will step aside and make way for Baron Davis, perhaps as soon as Friday night when the Cavaliers host the Detroit Pistons at Quicken Loans Arena. Davis made it through an entire practice Thursday, which was the last hurdle he had to clear before returning to the rotation.” [Jason Lloyd]

“When he’s healthy and his head is on straight, Davis brings the total package. That’s why Cavs coach Byron Scott is anxious to turn the reins of the offense over to him.” [Bob Finnan]

“Davis already has visions of a team next season with him, Jamison and center Anderson Varejao (out with an ankle injury) anchoring a youthful core.” [Jodie Valade]

“[Derrick] Williams led the Wildcats in a relative upset with 32 points (11-of-17 from the floor), 13 rebounds (six offensive), two steals, a blocked shot and a Williams-esque 5-of-6 from three-point land. [Kyrie] Irving, though playing for the losing Blue Devils, did not disappoint with team-high 28 points on 9-of-15 shooting to go with three assists and a steal.” [Scott Sargent]

“Cavs magic number is 9 (CLE losses; MIN victories) to clinch a 75% chance of not securing the top overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft.” [Eric Knappenberger]

“In regard to the #NBA draft do not get seduced by the last thing you see regardless of whether it’s good or bad. #Cavs” [Michael A. Young]

“My thoughts on draft: NBA rules prevent any comment on players still playing and/or undeclared for draft….And how I wish I could comment!” [Dan Gilbert]
