BEREA — As Browns General Manager John Dorsey built a playoff-caliber roster, Cavaliers forward Larry Nance Jr.’s excitement over his hometown team grew.
The Revere High School product tweeted his joy when the Browns traded for Miami Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry in March 2018. When Dorsey dealt for New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. this March, Nance angled for a jersey on Twitter.
Nance, 26, attended Browns training camp on Wednesday with rookies Darius Garland, Dylan Windler and Dean Wade. But when asked if this is the Browns team he’s waited for his entire life for, Nance took a larger view. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
Roundtable: Grading the Cavs’ summer, remaining roster spots and most interesting rookies

The Cavs are having a very slow summer, but there have at least been some developments. Here’s a short roundtable to give you insight in the middle of the dead period — check back on Friday for part two.
To date, what is your favorite move of the Cavs’ summer? What about your least favorite?
Chris Manning (@cwmwrites): I like how aggressive the team was in trading to get Kevin Porter Jr. They loved in the draft process and got him at a pretty good value slot in the draft. He’s the right kind of player to role the dice on and I’m really curious
On the flip side: why not find a way to bring back David Nwaba? It really seems like last year was mostly a favor to someone more than finding a diamond in the rough type. He’s good, even if he’s not a reliable shooter.
Evan Dammarell (@AmNotEvan): There really aren’t that many moves to talk about when it comes to favorites. Personally, I think drafting Darius Garland, Dylan Windler, and Kevin Porter Jr. was the team’s best move to date. All three are great foundational pieces that will hopefully help the Cavs long term. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
