The Cavs deny that they are “shopping” Daniel Gibson, but more than a few team sources say their club has had some level of contact regarding Gibson throughout the summer. With draft pick Dion Waiters expected to join super sophomore Kyrie Irving in the Cavs backcourt there may not be much of a role for Gibson and several teams have tried to engage Cleveland on a deal. As things settle in and the rookies in Cleveland find their way Gibson and his ending contract are likely on the move. HoopsWorld

The Cavs expect guard Daniel Gibson to be ready for training camp, even though there are no guarantees. He had foot surgery in April to repair a torn tendon. Until the Cavs find someone better, he'll be back for 2012-13. They'd have to pay him $2.5 million to go away, which doesn't really make sense with Donald Sloan, Manny Harris and D.J. Kennedy currently in their backcourt. News-Herald

During the NBA lockout, Gibson enjoyed a few unorthodox pursuits, including training in a Houston boxing ring to improve his hand speed and endurance. But he also participated in the wrap-up of a reality show Cole already had in production entitled Family First. “It’s about me playing basketball, her singing and us raising a son at the same time,” Gibson said Saturday after practice at Cleveland Clinic Courts. “It’s a pretty nice thing.” This is Cole’s second foray into the genre. According to her website, Keyshia Cole: The Way It Is was the most-watched series in the history of Black Entertainment Television during its 2006-2008 run. It is still listed on BET.com with a poll on whether viewers are in favor of a fourth season. (As of Saturday, the response was 97 percent yes.) Gibson said when and where Family First will run has not been finalized. “They’re still bidding for it as far as networks go,” he said. “It should air sometime around February. We’re still putting the finishing touches on it.” Akron Beacon Journal

We also discussed this comment from James after his Miami Heat defeated the Chicago Bulls this week: “I wanted to team up with some guys that would never die down in the moment. The opportunity presented itself with this great organization and we made it happen.” Daniel Gibson on LeBron’s comments: “The way it’s said, you can’t help but take it personal. I would prefer to talk to him personally and say, ”Exactly what did you mean when you said this comment? What point were you trying to make?”…I take comments like that and when you speak out and you feel the need for everybody to hear what you are saying, it’s kind of like admission. By you saying that, I don’t think great players should feel the need to say this about a team or say that about a team. I think what it all boils down to if you’re great, you go play great, be great and everybody will realize you’re great. And you wouldn’t have to let it be known that everybody else was less great. Great players shouldn’t have to do that. So I feel like it’s kind of an admission. He might have needed some help. He might have needed to go somewhere and find someone who is a little greater so maybe he wouldn’t die down in those moments.” The Dugout Sports Show
