    I’ll believe it when I see it. In January he wasn’t opting out. In March he wasn’t opting out… Here in June he’s opted out. When the Lakers / Blazers / Celtics… etc etc all give him calls on July 1 we’ll here he’s doing “due diligence”… a week later he’ll be leaving the Cavs. Frustratingly it will probably help them too. Can’t max out Love, max out Thompson, pay Mozgov 5 mill, pay Varejao 10 mill.. and somehow expect a balanced, title contending roster.

    I’m going to chalk this up to him wanting to be “wooed” for the first time in his career. He’s never been thru the FA process and maybe he wants to show teams like the Lakers a bit of respect. I would be a little surprised if he doesn’t sign with the Cavs…..but we’ll see.
