WESTLAKE: Maybe a lengthy lockout isn’t so bad for the Cavaliers after all. If nothing else, it will give rookie Kyrie Irving’s injured foot enough time to fully heal.
Irving said at his youth basketball camp Saturday that his foot feels “150 percent,” but that doctors told him it will be another few months before the foot is completely healed. NBA training camps were expected to open in about a week, but the league postponed everything following the latest breakdown in negotiations.To read more or comment...
The NBA today officially postponed the start of training camp and canceled the first 43 preseason games through Oct. 15. That wipes out the Cavs' first three preseason games: home against the Milwaukee Bucks (Oct. 13), at Orlando (Oct. 15) and home against the New Orleans Hornets.
As it stands now, the Cavs' first preseason game is Oct. 17 at San Antonio. But with labor negotiations at a standstill, the rest of the preseason schedule seems in peril, too.To read more or comment...
The Cavaliers are holding open tryouts in both Cleveland and Canton for men interested in trying out for the team's new Development League team which begins play in Canton this fall.
The Cleveland tryout is Saturday, Oct. 8 and continues on Sunday, Oct. 9 at St. Ignatius. The Canton tryout is Saturday, Oct. 15 and continues on Sunday, Oct. 16 at Canton Fieldhouse. Participants must be available to participate on both days. Anyone who makes the cut will be invited to the D-League team's training camp.To read more or comment...
