Chauncey Billups, Cavaliers owner meeting for 2nd time, per AP source

25 June 2017

He could be joining them as an executive.

Billups, 40, the former champion point guard with the Detroit Pistons and current ESPN analyst who has no front-office experience, met again Wednesday with Cavs owner Dan Gilbert to discuss taking over the team's front office.

Billups is believed to be the only candidate interviewed for the job, after negotiations between Gilbert and general manager David Griffin hit a standstill, resulting in his departutre from the franchise.

Billups and Gilbert have long had a relationship.

Striker Diego Costa hard to replace at Chelsea, says Frank Lampard
The Everton striker had another fine season in 2016/17, scoring 25 Premier League goals to finish runner-up to Tottenham's Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot.

Regarded as an extremely intelligent and mentally tough player, Billups was a five-time All-Star, earning second-team All-NBA honors on one occasion and third-team accolades twice.

Unable to pull off a trade or move into the first round of the National Basketball Association draft, the Cleveland Cavaliers didn't add any significant player Thursday or fill a major hole in their front office.

Nothing ever seems good enough for Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert.

Billups has zero front office experience and is now an analyst for ESPN. For now, Irving can wait to see what happens, but if the "King" bolts for Los Angeles, "Uncle Drew" may not be far behind as he looks to add more championship rings to his collection.

'Bothersome' that Mueller is 'very good friends' with Comey
Trump, in the Fox News Channel interview, did not say exactly what he thought had changed about Comey's story. Senate, versus 22 percent who are more likely to believe what Trump has said, NBC News reported.

"If no one appreciated you Griff I did, and hopefully all the people of Cleveland!".

"Right now he with us until I hear something different", Cube tells TMZ Sports. Looking back at Griffin's tenure, he was smart and savvy and made the most of his resources while keeping Gilbert out of LeBron's way, but he never got the credit due him. Obviously, the interest in Love (an All-Star and one of five in the National Basketball Association to average 19 points and 10 rebounds this season) was not strong enough.

The team has donated more than $2 million to nonprofits in the city through team fundraisers, in-game raffles and watch parties during the past three years.

While Clifford acknowledges Howard, 31, isn't as athletic as he once was, he said the 6-foot-11, 265-pound center will bring defensive toughness and physicality - something the Hornets lacked last season while finishing 36-46. But he was a five-time All-Star, won a championship and was named a Finals MVP during his 17-year career.

Firework sales underway, firefighters warn of injury and fire risks
The Bexar County Public Safety Communications Center will operate a fireworks hotline from July 2 through July 5, officials said. The fireworks seizure resulted in the issuing of 40 citations totaling $50,000 in fines for possession of illegal fireworks.

Last season, he averaged 7.1 points and 5.2 assists for the Pelicans in 65 games, including 35 starts.
