LeBron James (Strep Throat) Will Play Monday vs

Deron Williams talks to the media after joining the Cavaliers. His contribution to this team's championship aspirations are rather simple since, for the first time in his career, he won't be asked to carry a sizable load in order to give his team a chance of winning. The Cavaliers are 4-19 without James since he returned to Cleveland in 2014, including 0-4 this season.

Williams will initially come off the bench for the Cavs, who have been seeking a backup for All-Star Kyrie Irving all season.

The Cavs are also vying to sign 7-foot center Andrew Bogut, whose buyout with Philadelphia became official late Monday afternoon, but it now looks like they will have competition from Houston, San Antonio and Boston.

"Being with (James) in those two Olympics and seeing him work every day and lead every day, it was definitely someone that I wanted to team up and play with", Williams said. "He just makes everyone better, myself included". "He's run multiple franchises before and has played in big games before, so you know he won't shy away from the moment". I had a good time in Dallas, playing in front of family and friends. "I'll have a significant role here".

"Griff did promise me a starting job, but other than that." he joked of general manager David Griffin.

Bogut is also drawing interest from the Spurs, Rockets and Celtics, according to ESPN.

"We needed his juice tonight", Lue said of James.

LeBron James will play Monday night despite battling strep throat over the past few days, Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue indicated prior to Cleveland's matchup against the Milwaukee Bucks.

"In the first three games it was much easier to get into the paint", Antetokounmpo said. Ultimately, it's probably the best move for the team as they work to develop the former No. 5 overall pick.

The former University of IL standout has career averages of 16.6 points, 8.2 assists and 3.1 rebounds.

Korver has blended in perfectly with Cleveland's offence after coming over in a trade from Atlanta last month.

"I really think it's an incredible fit", Korver said. Deron isn't almost the player he once was when he used to electrify the National Basketball Association on a nightly basis, but his game has aged fairly well and he is still able to carve up National Basketball Association defenses in a number of ways. "We're looking at different things and different matchups so when we get into the playoffs we know what to expect".

The glaring need of another point guard has been known. He's got size and can switch on defense. He can play off the ball. You kept all that, and now LeBron will re-light the fuse in Deron Williams, and LeBron will faith-heal Deron from all of his nagging injuries - because LeBron is capable of doing that, right? "He's a veteran guy who wants to win".
