"CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Yes, the Cavs are meeting with restricted free agent Gordon Hayward. But it's doubtful any offer sheet will be coming in the next day or so for the 24-year-old small forward.

Nor has the team decided to make the Utah's leading scorer a maximum offer. That would be $63 million over four seasons -- although it may eventually come to that. Then again, the Cavs know that would be very extreme for a player of his caliber.

From what I've been told, the Cavs know they will have to pay a lot for Hayward. Utah has about $30 million in salary cap room and may match any offer Hayward receives." - CLICK HERE to read full story.

"CLEVELAND, Ohio — Mentor boys basketball coach Bob Krizancic knows that the Cleveland Cavaliers made the right move drafting Andrew Wiggins No. 1 overall in the 2014 NBA Draft.

He knows because he has first-hand experience of what it's like to coach against him.

Mentor played against Wiggins when he played at Huntington Prep (W.V.) in the Dunk 4 Diabetes Shootout on Jan. 26, 2013. Huntington Prep beat Mentor, 61-59, and Wiggins scored 30 points, 23 in the second half." - CLICK HERE to read full story.
