Cleveland Cavaliers center Brendan Haywood is recovering nicely from last year's foot surgery and will practice from the outset once training camp begins Saturday, league sources tell Northeast Ohio Media Group. He will be limited when it comes to certain drills, but his activity will be increased throughout the course of preseason. One source says Haywood's full-contact clear date is "close" if he keeps up this accelerated path. Cleveland Plain Dealer

In a post-season interview with the Observer Friday, Dunlap said he had evolved as a coach this season. He noted that he had backed off on managing every aspect of games from the sideline and had shortened practices. “Whether it’s Kemba Walker or Brendan Haywood, they appreciate what you don’t say when the game is being played,’’ Dunlap said. “In college you can literally yell across the floor and direct traffic with a player and it’s perfectly acceptable. Here the pro player can’t stand that.’’ Charlotte Observer
