As I wrote a few weeks ago, & said on the recent podcast, as long as Ben Simmons is available, #Cavs will be interested in adding that level of talent. The asking price is high. That matters. And whether Cavs can make the best offer, one that Philly would accept, is a question.

The Sixers reportedly have a high asking price for Simmons and Cleveland isn’t alone in their pursuit. The Pistons, Raptors, Pacers, and Wolves are all eyeing the disgruntled Philadelphia star.

LBJ says he has a plan for the new additions. “I always figure it out,” James said (via Dan Woike of the Los Angeles Times). James went into further detail about his fit with Westbrook. “As far as Russ, we need Russ to be Russ. We don’t need Russ to change for anybody,” James said. “That’s why we got him. And it’s our job to help him feel comfortable in our system. And he’s going to be as dynamic as he’s always been.”
- New Wizards forward Kyle Kuzma sees some similarities between Bradley Beal and his old teammates, LeBron James and Anthony Davis. “He makes the right play and that’s really important for winning basketball,” Kuzma told our own Chris Crouse and other media recently). ” I see it all the time, especially playing with LeBron and AD, if they wanted to they could come down the court and score every single time if they wanted to. But understanding your teammates and whatever the right play is in front of you, that’s the most important thing. And he does that.”
