Things have not gone well for the Cleveland Cavaliers this season.
Center Andrew Bynum didn’t work out and was traded to the Chicago Bulls. Dion Waiters and Kyrie Irving are reportedly unhappy and are causing most of the issues with the team, there is unhappiness with head coach Mike Brown and the rest of his staff and the Cavaliers, who hoped to make the playoffs, are just 16-31.
Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon-Journal has the scoop.
“He’s acting like he doesn’t care,” said one unnamed player about Irving.
“It’s pretty much a mess,” one source close to the team said.
Brown has seven assistants, which is causing players to become confused when told different things.
“We’re getting too many mixed messages,” one player said. “This isn’t very much fun. We were losing last year with Byron, but at least we were having fun.”
Lloyd reports that two sources believe there will be a lot of roster turnover, possibly involving Waiters and the great David Aldridge of NBA.com believes the Cavaliers are going to be active at the trade deadline.
