It’s been a tough few seasons for the Cavaliers organization. No team has a worse record since 2010/11, as Mary Schmitt Boyer of the Plain Dealer points out, Cleveland is 90-209 in that stretch, good for just a .301 winning percentage. Let’s look at the latest on the Cavs:
- Cleveland signed Seth Curry to a 10-day contract yesterday, and the young guard is excited for the opportunity he’ll have to prove he belongs in the NBA, reports Jodie Valade of the Plain Dealer. With five players sidelined for tonight’s game versus the Rockets, Curry will likely receive ample opportunity to showcase his abilities.
- An official team announcement confirmed that Shane Edwards has re-signed with the D-League affiliate of the Cavs, the Canton Charge. Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio was the first to report that the forward would return to Canton, where he’s spent most of the season, if the Cavs decided not to retain him. Cleveland terminated his 10-day contract Friday to make room for Curry.
- LeBron James is surprised at the Cavs’ lack of success in 2013/14, but he doesn’t think it’s fair for him to judge the club, writes Ira Winderman of the Sun Sentinel. “Who am I to say they should play better or not? I’m not there with them every day,” said James. “I’m not coaching them. I’m not playing. From the beginning of the season, I think we all would say they’d be in better contention in the East.” A rumored offseason reunion between James and Cleveland has been one of the most discussed topics this season, but he doesn’t sound overly impressed with the team as it stands.
