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-/

According to David Aldridge of NBA.com, the Philadelphia 76ers will add P.J. Carlesimo to Brett Brown‘s coaching staff. Carlesimo will replace Mike D’Antoni as associate head coach. A spot on head coach Brett Brown’s staff opened up when the Houston Rockets hired Mike D’Antoni to be their next head coach. D’Antoni was added to Brown’s staff in December. The hiring may not yet be official, however. According to a source with knowledge of the situation, head coach Brett Brown is still evaluating candidates and does not have a timetable on when that decision will be reached.

So did the Wizards make the right call in opting for Beal over Barnes? Despite his injury history, which included a concussion, broken nose, bruised pelvis and shoulder contusion this season alone, that appears to be the case. If Barnes hits the market and is allowed to leave (he rejected a $64 million extension before the 2015-16 season began), he’ll get similar money to Beal. Based on what CSNmidatlantic.com has been told, however, the Wizards won’t be one of those teams in the running at that pricetag.
Storyline: Harrison Barnes Free Agency
