Nance Jr., Cavs agree to four-year contract extension

With the move, the Cavs get to hold on to a young, athletic big, and Nance should finally see a boost in minutes from the low 20s he's averaged in his first three years in the league. Now, it's up to Love to live up to his contract and be the "A-hole" that Lue and the city of Cleveland need.

As for whether this is a hard stretch, Rozier said, "I feel like every week is".

Perhaps knowing that he should have been more decisive on the first opportunity, he called for a screen from Pascal Siakam and got himself an advantageous switch on Kevin Love. I mean, I've been able to play there a few times.

Nance Jr and co. will be looking to get their season off to the best possible start when they take on the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night.

More from Cleveland.com: "Nance, an Akron-native, worked with the Cavs so his salary declines as the deal goes along and the team can maintain cap flexibility".

The reigning East champion Cleveland Cavaliers - so comfortable and dominant north of the border during the LeBron James era that they should have been granted dual citizenship - looked completely overmatched and out of place sharing the court with one of the conference's elite, dropping the first game of the season, 116-104.

He adds that apart from success in the wins column, success should be measured by building a winning culture shaped, in part, by the mentality ingrained in young talent like Larry Nance Jr., Sam Dekker and the four rookies now on the roster.

Can he take a step forward?

Larry Bird used to say how much he loved going into a hostile arena and quieting the home crowd.

"We're a play-off team", he said.

Although Love played just one season of college hoops at UCLA before entering the 2008 National Basketball Association draft, 10 years later he stands by his decision to turn pro early.

"We know that we are one of the top offensive teams, but we want to mirror that with our defense", Anthony told reporters, via ESPN. "They gave me some more energy".

"I'm actually at a loss for words right now", said Nance.

"I'm very fortunate and very happy where I am now in my 11th year".

Without LeBron James, the Cavaliers mental toughness was challenged.
