In what is shaping up to be one of the most exciting seasons in recent memory, after one of the most frantic offseasons in recent history, new Houston Rockets guard Chris Paul has some thoughts about the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Particularly, Paul has some thoughts about Dwyane Wade joining LeBron James in Cleveland this season.

“I told them guys congrats,” Paul said, per Locked On Rockets’ Ben DuBose. “At the end of the day, I know [Carmelo Anthony] wants to beat them bad. I want to beat them bad. They want to beat us bad. It is what it is.”

Wade joining the Cavs wasn’t a surprise to anyone, after he reached a buyout agreement with the Chicago Bulls.

“Once I got the opportunity to get the buyout, I looked around, and I was flattered by the teams that reached out, but at the end of the day, this is where I wanted to be. This is where I felt I should be from a basketball perspective to come in and be a part of this,” Wade said, per ESPN.com’s Dave McMenamin.

“This team right here from top to bottom is one of the most talented teams I’ve been on. Just happy to come and to be able to add whatever I can to this group.”

Cavs’ Larry Drew Discusses Brandon Knight’s Play of Late

Published

The Cleveland Cavaliers knew that when they acquired Brandon Knight in a trade deadline deal with the Houston Rockets, that they were acquiring a player that may be a ways away from returning to form.

Knight, who missed the entire 2017-2018 season and appeared in only 14 games this season due to a torn ACL, has been showing signs of a return to form in his short stint with the Cavs, and it has caught the attention of Cavaliers’ head coach Larry Drew.

“I know what he’s gone through over a period with the injury and trying to come back from it,” Drew said of Knight, according to Joe Vardon of The Athletic.

“I know what he’s capable of doing. I know what type of player he is. He’s a fierce competitor. Not only does he do it from an offensive end, but defensively, he’s a tough kid. That addition in our lineup gives us a little versatility as far as we can move people around. … And I know how bad he wants to get back to the Brandon Knight of old. Certainly if he can get back to that, you guys are going to see a terrific player.”
