JR Smith: Happy to say that I am returning to the Cavs! It’s been a long ride this summer but I can say for sure, well worth the wait. When I opted out of my contract, I wanted to understand the landscape of the NBA and where I fit best. The Cavaliers had things they needed to do in order to piece together a championship caliber roster. I ended up deciding that instead of potentially securing a larger deal elsewhere, I wanted to rejoin an incredible organization in pursuit of the ultimate goal, an NBA championship. Thank you to the Cavaliers for making this happen. Can’t wait to get started! #TheLand http://instagram.com/p/6oG0NDNfH-/

Bogdan Bogdanovic returned to Istanbul with a silver Olympic medal on his bags and a chip on his shoulder. The Serbian sharp shooter is ready for the challenge of the new season and in order for him to take the next step, he should first win the Euroleague. As he explained to Eurohoops during the club’s media day: “I thought a lot about staying in Fenerbahçe or going to NBA. When you make a career choice, there is no way back. You need to be sure that’s the best thing for you, you need to believe in your choice. Going to NBA is a big dream for me.
In a Facebook Video conversation at Nets practice Wednesday, Brook Lopez was asked by Chris Carrino if he he had found a “natural fit” working together. Lopez, the Brook in Brook-Lin, didn’t take a second to respond. “No question, no question. Jeremy is such a smart player, such a high Basketball IQ, that it’s easy to communicate with him. He picks up stuff very quickly. He’s figured out my game already. I mean he’s seen my game from playing against me. But just being on the court, playing together “We’ve grown immensely already. And he’s just so great coming off the pick-and-roll and attacking, getting in the paint, finding opportunity in that way. We’re absolutely building a great relationship. We’ve known each other previously but on the court for this short period we have been together, we’ve already grown comfortable together.”
