Cavs sign Larry Nance Jr. to contract extension

The Cleveland Cavaliers opened up their 2018-19 season on the road against the Toronto Raptors Wednesday night.

Nurse's willingness to point out what might not have been done last season is noteworthy, and while he may have been champing at the bit to make those changes a year ago, he has full authority to do so now.

According to Cleveland.com, "Nance and the Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a four-year contract extension, solidifying him as a franchise building block while the organization attempts to rebuild a championship roster in the post-LeBron era".

Nance averaged 8.9 points and 7.0 rebounds per game in his 27 appearances in the regular season for Cleveland, and they clearly see him as an important piece for the future.

"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.

LeBron James was the main man as the Cavaliers faced off against the Golden State Warriors in four straight finals.

The two-time NBA Defensive Player of the Year was limited to nine games last season because of a quadriceps injury.

"It would take a huge step in a positive direction there, so I think that's success as well", he says, adding that sheer hustle will have to make up the slack from losing James this season and All-Star Irving to the Celtics in 2017.

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

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.
