Cleveland (0-3): There is something seriously wrong with the Cavs, something that needs to be addressed, immediately. They've already gone the team meeting route with little impact. Can't imagine owner Dan Gilbert's going to stand idly by much longer. It may be time for GM Chris Grant to pull the trigger on a chemistry-altering deal. NBA.com

Nevada regulators have recommended that Horseshoe Casino Cleveland and Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert be allowed to purchase interest in a Caesars Entertainment affiliate. The company, Caesars Interactive Entertainment, operates an online real-money poker site in the state and is applying for the right to run an on-line site in New Jersey. Gilbert and his company, Rock Gaming, paid $60 million for interest in Caesars Interactive Entertainment in May 2012 and loaned the company another $19 million last November, reports Howard Stutz of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Both the payment and loan would be converted into equity, giving Gilbert 5.45 percent of the company and Rock 9.9 percent. Cleveland Plain Dealer

A day later, Irving cautioned that it's way too early to talk about contracts, but he will offer one bit of reassurance: He has a great relationship with Gilbert. "I finally got out of calling him 'Mr. Gilbert,'" Irving said. "We have a great relationship, and it extends off the basketball court. That's about where it stands right now. We're building a culture here in Cleveland, and he told me I'm one of the guys at the forefront of it. We're building an identity here, and I want to be a part of that. Having guys come in, building a championship contending team, that's what it's all about." Cleveland Plain Dealer

Tom Gores: Right now the Palace is our home, and I’m excited about that. You know how it is; you got to take care of your home. It’s really doing a service and my whole focus — all of our Palace team, everybody — is how do we get this franchise back to the top. I’m also excited about what also is going on in Detroit. There’s really great stuff going on downtown. I spoke to (Quicken Loans founder and Cavs owner) Dan Gilbert a few weeks ago and he has some great stuff going on down there. I’m excited for Detroit, but right now our single biggest job is to get the franchise back to the top and I think if we do that everything will take care of itself. That’s been our focus.
