Cavaliers GM remains confident PF Kevin Love sticking around


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(6/26/2015) Cavaliers general manager David Griffin has reiterated his confidence that power forward Kevin Love will remain with the team despite opting out of his contract.

Superstar LeBron James is also expected to opt out, but the moves are designed to maximize their deals.

Love has stated repeatedly his desire to remain in Cleveland, but rumors persist that he will not only be courted by teams such as the Celtics and Lakers, but that he is leaning toward accepting an offer to go elsewhere.

"I think he has been very clear with what his intentions are all along," Griffin told the Northeast Ohio Media Group. "Any time he has stood in front of anybody he's said that. I'm not concerned about it."

When asked late during the playoff run if he wanted to stay with the Cavaliers, Love said, 'Yes ... I want to win."

Neither the Lakers nor the Celtics would likely provide him that immediate opportunity.

Love, however, did not match previous career numbers as a third wheel in Cleveland. He averaged 16.4 points and 9.7 rebounds per game this season and lost a chance to contribute to the last three playoff series when he sustained a shoulder injury.

Mavericks to rely more offensively on SF Chandler Parsons


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(6/12/2015) Mavericks forward Chandler Parsons will have the ball in his hands a lot more during his second year with the franchise, the team announced on their website.

Parsons, who averaged 15.7 points per game during his first year in Dallas, will be used as a featured scorer in next year's offense.

“His game has grown a lot,” Mavs coach Rick Carlisle said, via the team. “He’s not only a shooter and a scorer, but he’s a playmaker. He’s a defender and a rebounder. He’s one of our best all-around players. As the season went on, his responsibilities grew. And they will continue to grow going forward. This period where he’s going to have surgery and recover, there are going to be plenty of things that he can do to refine his game, even if he’s not on the court going 100 percent. I’ve had long discussions with him about that. There will be no time wasted, and he will continue to get better and be one of the best young players in the game.”

Parsons said he is ready to embrace a bigger role alongside Mavs legend Dirk Nowitzki.

“I’m going into my prime,” Parsons said. “I think I’m ready. I feel like this year was more of a year to get comfortable and get my feet wet. I had some big games. Next year, I hope for a much bigger role. I want the ball in my hands. I want good players around me. I think we have a chance to make some noise next year."


Cavaliers PG Kyrie Irving on injury: 'It was just a freak play'


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

Irving logged 44 minutes in Game 1 against the Warriors and played well, scoring 23 points, grabbing seven rebounds and dishing out six assists. But the overload of playing time turned a lot of heads, which led to speculation on if he was overworked and that contributed to the fracture.

"It wasn't about the minutes or anything like that that everyone wants to kind of speculate about," Irving said. "It was me who decided to go out and play, put my body on the line."

Irving is projected to miss about 3-4 months as he rehabs the injury.

I feel like right now is the perfect time for me to go in and get it cleaned out, especially going into a contract year, and a big year for us as the Heat."

He added that he has been doing some light shooting and should be cleared for heavier duty by the first week of July.

Chalmers averaged a career-high 10.2 points in 24 minutes per game this year. But he shot just 40.3 percent from the field, his poorest accuracy since the 2010-11 season.
