CLEVELAND — The Cavaliers are in discussion with former NBA MVP and free agent Derrick Rose on a one-year contract, multiple league sources told cleveland.com.

Rose, 28, is a point guard and three-time All-Star who won the MVP with the Bulls in the 2010-11 season. He averaged 18 points and 4.4 assists in 64 games for the New York Knicks before suffering a season-ending meniscus tear last year.

The most the Cavs can offer Rose is $2.5 million from what’s remaining of the team’s mid-level exception to the salary cap. Cleveland could also offer him the veteran’s minimum — which for him would be $2.1 million. – CLICK HERE to read full story.

CLEVELAND — Kyrie Irving said he wants to create a “self-sustaining community” that would live off a giant piece of farmland he plans to buy with his fortune.

Irving, the Cavs’ star point guard, unveiled his strange designs during his appearance on the Short Story Long podcast when host Chris “Drama” Pfaff asked if he had any “big aspirations” for the next 20 years or so.

Irving, 25, who is entering the third season of his $94 million contract extension with the Cavs, said he and unnamed others are in fact already working on his plan to, in essence, build an Epcot-style future world in which a select few can live healthy lifestyles without having to pay for it. – CLICK HERE to read full story.
