Wednesday, July 9th, 2014

With all the hyperbole, rumor, and silliness floating around, Tom and I went in into the broadcast booth to talk about LeBron and his options. Who’s whispering in his ear? Will he return to Cleveland? Have the opinions of random Northeast Ohioans who have tenuous affiliations with the King reached a critical mass? Will Pat Riley pull off another miracle? Who else could the Cavs add? What if our hopes are dashed? We may know the answers later today.

For now, listen to us while you’re glued to your Twitter feed. We can be heard on SoundCloud at https://soundcloud.com/ctb-5/0051-decision-eve-deja-vu-2014

Above Par, Chandler Parsons

I love Chandler Parsons. My girlfriend thinks he’s a model, and basketball nuts think he’s a bargain for what he has done for the Rockets as a second round pick. However, if you search the words “Cavs” and “Chandler Parsons” on Google, there are only two articles, both from Cavs’ blogs, even fathoming the idea of Parsons coming to the Cavs.  I know it’s a long shot.  The Cavs would most likely have to pay him above his actual value of $8-10 million a year, and even if they they did over pay him, the Rockets could match the offer or make the Cavs do a sign and trade deal for him.  He might not even sign a Cleveland offer sheet solely because he values big city life or just warm weather.  He’s a valuable player in the modern NBA, which is why so many teams are contemplating making an offer to him.

The news surrounding the Cavs right now is sparse.  Chad Ford is saying very obvious things about the draft for the team: “First, team doctors are going to have to get comfortable with Embiid’s back. If there is any hint it might require more treatment or long-term correction, the chances of Embiid going No. 1 dwindle.”  No new crazy trades or scenarios are being proposed aside from the ones trying to get Joakim Noah, Al Horford, Kevin Love, or LaMarcus Aldridge to the Cavs.  Everyone wants those guys.
