Mo Williams reverses course, informs Cavs he will retire

By Jason Lloyd Published: September 26, 2016

INDEPENDENCE: Mo Williams will not play for the Cavaliers this season and has essentially retired. Williams’ agent, Raymond Brothers, called Cavs general manager David Griffin before the team held its media day Monday to inform him of the decision.

Williams has considered retirement as far back as January, but insisted to the Beacon Journal last winter he was opting out of his contract at the end of last season and becoming a free agent again to take advantage of the salary cap spike. Then he picked up his player option and wrote on Twitter last week he was coming back for one more year. Apparently, however, he changed his mind yet again. He did not join the Cavs for their workouts last week in California and he did not attend Monday’s event.

“It was in debate what Mo was going to choose to do,” Griffin said. “He vacillated a little bit so we were planning on this eventuality throughout. We feel very comfortable about where we are at the point guard position.”

Former Kent guard Nate Reinking to be named Charge head coach

By Jason Lloyd Published: September 20, 2016

Former Kent State guard Nate Reinking will be named the new head coach of the Canton Charge, the Cavs' Development League affiliate, a league source told the Beacon Journal. Reinking, 42, left Kent as the seventh-leading scorer in school history in 1996 before playing overseas for nearly two decades.

Reinking earned British citizenship during his playing days and played for Great Britain in the 2012 London Olympics. He has been an assistant with the Charge since 2013 and takes over for Jordi Fernandez, who recently left to join the Denver Nuggets’ coaching staff. Fernandez leaves as the winningest coach in Charge history following consecutive conference championship appearances.

Sources: Former coach David Blatt will get championship ring from Cavs

By Jason Lloyd Published: September 15, 2016

David Blatt is getting one more parting gift from the Cavaliers: a championship ring.

Blatt was fired at the midpoint of the Cavs’ championship season, but the team has ordered a ring for him, too, multiple sources confirmed to the Beacon Journal. He is now the head coach of Darüsşafaka Doğuş in Turkey.

Blatt went 83-40 in parts of two seasons with the Cavs and guided them to the NBA Finals in 2015, where they lost to the Golden State Warriors in six games. He was replaced by Tyronn Lue after going 30-11 last season. Under Lue, the Cavs became the first team in NBA Finals history to erase a 3-1 deficit and win the championship.

By Dan Kadar Published: September 13, 2016

Despite risking his car getting destroyed by angry Golden State Warriors fans, Conrad Kaczmarek is taking the risk. The Cavaliers fan and California resident boldly purchased a vanity license plate that reads "3 1LEAD."

That's right, as in that time the Warriors had a 3-1 lead on the Cavs in the NBA Finals before Cleveland turned it around and ended the city's championship curse.

Iman Shumpert could be suspended following DUI arrest last month

By Jason Lloyd Published: September 9, 2016

Cavs guard Iman Shumpert could be facing a suspension following his arrest near Atlanta for driving under the influence of marijuana.

Shumpert was arrested around 11:30 p.m. on Aug. 10 by the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department and charged with DUI, possession of marijuana (less than an ounce) and failure to maintain lane after an officer spotted the taillights on his rental car weren’t working and observed him swerving. The Cavs announced Shumpert’s arrest on Friday. No court date has been set.

Ty Lawson was suspended two games for his first DUI arrest last season and Greg Monroe was suspended two games for driving while visibly impaired – a charge in Michigan similar to DUI. If convicted, Shumpert will also be placed in the league’s marijuana program. If this is Shumpert’s first marijuana violation, he will not face additional sanctions. Players aren’t suspended for marijuana use until a third offense, either by court conviction or a failed drug test administered by the league. A second violation results in a $25,000 fine and a third offense is a five-game suspension.
