Mon Nov 520:13Cavs sign Drew to new coaching contract for rest of seasonKevin LovePFCavaliersFree Agent
CLEVELAND (AP) — Larry Drew's awkward impasse with the Cleveland Cavaliers is over.The team relented to Drew's requests by restructuring his contract and signing him to be their coach for the remainder of this season — and perhaps beyond.Drew and his agent, Andy Miller, had been negotiating since the Cavs' top assistant asked for security and guarantees if he was going to become the rebuilding team's interim coach and replace Tyronn Lue, who was fired on Oct. 28 following a 0-6 start. Drew wanted a pay raise to finish out the season and got one.Drew's new deal includes a team option for the 2019-20 season. If the Cavs chose not to retain him, Drew will receive a buyout payment."So now there's clarity," Drew said Monday night before the Cavs played in Orlando. "There's just no gray area, and because there's no gray area and me and my staff can just roll our sleeves up put all into helping this team be successful."Drew said he did not talk to the team about anything beyond this seaso...

CLEVELAND (AP) — Cleveland Cavaliers assistant Larry Drew has agreed to a new contract to be the team's interim coach for the remainder of this season.Drew had asked the team to restructure his deal if he was going to take over after Tyronn Lue was fired.

Smith wanting to be traded. Also, former assistant Jim Boylan filed an age discrimination lawsuit against the Cavs.The team holds an option for next season with Drew, the club's top assistant since 2016.General manager Koby Altman said Drew "brings important experience and many qualities that we expect to translate well with our team."___More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/tag/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports

Ben SimmonsPG76ersFree Agent
NEW YORK (AP) — At home, they can beat anybody.On the road, the Philadelphia 76ers only beat themselves.That's what they did Sunday night in Brooklyn, committing an NBA season-high 28 turnovers in a 122-97 loss. A team that was expected to be among the Eastern Conference contenders is only 6-5, and the 76ers are 0-5 outside Philadelphia."We are not, right now, at this present moment, amongst the royalty in the East and we understand that," coach Brett Brown said. "And it's a badge that we want. It's in us. But at this moment, after 11 games, that's not where we are. And that's OK."This group does have fight, this group does have pride and we will find a way to move on, move up, move forward and that's my job."The 76ers were routed at Toronto, Milwaukee and Boston, but those are three of the top teams in the conference. The loss in Brooklyn, their most lopsided of the season, was such a pitiful performance — Brown called it "unacceptable"— that the coach made sure to stress that i... [More]

The best 3-point shooter who ever lived, at least in terms of volume, is Ray Allen.Boston used to have him.Milwaukee used to have him.And he doesn't figure into either franchise's greatest single-game 3-point barrage.With NBA records being set from 3-point range this season — Golden State's Klay Thompson has already busted the mark for 3s in a game with 14, one more than the standard his fellow Warriors sharpshooter Stephen Curry established in 2016, the league is well on its way to making more shots from beyond the arc than ever before.The record, set last season, is 25,807. The NBA is on pace this season to make about 27,300 shots from 3-point land.Now, not even three full weeks into this season, five teams have broken their own franchise record for 3s in a game. The most recent entry into that club was Milwaukee, which connected on 22 3s — on 56 tries, as opposed to 39 from inside the arc — in its 144-109 win over Sacramento on Sunday. The Bucks used 13 players, with everyone ... [More]

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Kawhi Leonard is sitting out with foot soreness when the Toronto Raptors face the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night.Leonard injured his left foot late in the fourth quarter of Toronto's win at Phoenix on Friday night, and coach Nick Nurse says the Raptors are being careful with their superstar.The decision deprived Lakers fans of their only chance this season to see Leonard, who could be an unrestricted free agent coveted by their team next summer.

He missed two games last month, skipping half of two back-to-back sets.___More AP NBA: www.apnews.com/NBA and www.twitter.com/AP_Sports

WASHINGTON (AP) — Scott Brooks knows he needs to try something to change the way things are going for his Washington Wizards. The problems are so plentiful, the coach just is not quite sure what to do.All-Star guards John Wall and Bradley Beal lead the Wizards into their game against the visiting New York Knicks on Sunday with a 1-7 record, including 0-3 at home, and five consecutive losses overall."Patience is running low from everybody," Beal said. "We've got to do it more collectively. The only way were going to get out of this slump is we've got to do it together."Their defense already was the worst in the NBA, giving up 122.4 points per game, before allowing even more than that in a 134-111 setback against Russell Westbrook and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday night."It just looks like nobody's on the same page. I mean, like, if one person gets beat or somebody gives up a wide-open shot, nobody is there to help that person or pick that person up. Got to all be on one string,"... [More]
