LeBron James to Wear No. 23 for Cavaliers


Mike Ehrmann/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- LeBron James tweeted on Sunday that he'll go back to wearing No. 23 this season as he makes his return to Cleveland.

When James left Cleveland in 2010, fans burned his No. 23 jersey, but now they'll have to go out and buy another one.

"23 it is! It's only right I go back. 2·3=6 We still family 6. #HomeTeam #StriveForGreatness," James tweeted.

James switched to his Olympic No. 6 with the Miami Heat, but decided to switch back after the league did not retire the number for Michael Jordan.

James has led the league jersey sales for six of the 11 seasons he's played in the NBA.

Jets' Smith and Milliner Make a Pair of Bold Proclamations


Doug Pensinger/Getty Images(CORTLAND, N.Y.) -- The one thing the New York Jets are not short on during training camp is confidence. Second-year players Geno Smith and Dee Milliner both think they're on the verge of stardom.

In a recent survery compiled by ESPN, Smith was ranked the worst starting quarterback in the NFL, something he plans on changing.

"The thing about it is, you have to climb up," Smith told ESPN.com on Saturday after practice. "If I'm No. 32, by this time next year or the year after, I expect to be in the top 5."

In his rookie year, Smith threw 12 touchdowns compared to 21 interceptions.

Meanwhile, sophomore cornerback Dee Milliner made an even bolder claim.

"The best corner in the league? Me," Milliner told the New York Daily News in an interview Saturday. "I ain't gonna say that somebody else is better than me."

Milliner's rookie season was categorized by many as inconsistent at best. He made 56 tackles in 2013 to go along with three interceptions.

ESPN: Kings Set to Sign Omri Caspi to One-Year Deal


Ronald Martinez/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Omri Caspi is going to where his NBA career began as ESPN is reporting that the veteran forward is nearing a one-year deal with the Sacramento Kings.

In 2009, the Kings drafted Caspi 23rd overall, making him the first Israeli player to be drafted in the first round.

Caspi spent last season with the Houston Rockets, but was dealt recently to the New Orleans Hornets as part of the Omer Asik trade.

The Hornets wound up waiving Caspi, leaving him free to sign with anyone after clearing waivers.

During his five-year career, Caspi has proved to be a reliable option off the bench, even if it's in limted minutes. In 71 games for the Rockets last season, he averaged 6.9 points and 3.7 rebounds per game in 18.1 minutes per game.

Casspi's cap hit for the upcoming season will be $915,243, which help the Kings stay under the tax threshold without being forced to release forward Quincy Acy

NBA via Detoit Pistons(NEW YORK) -- After taking this past year off, former NBA guard Richard Hamilton will pursue a chance to get back into the league.

Now 36-years-old, Hamilton recently spoke David Alacron of HoopsHype, he expressed his desire to play in the NBA again.

 "Yeah, yeah. I think for me, personally, I have to see how my body responds after the summer," he said. "I want to play another year and hopefully get an opportunity to play on a team with a chance to win a title."

Hamilton also added that multiple teams have contacted him about his services for next season.

A 14-year NBA veteran, Hamilton spent the 2012-2013 season as a member of the Chicago Bulls. His minutes and points per game were the lowest of his career since his rookie season back in 1999.

For his career though, Hamilton has always been a steady and reliable wing scorer. He averaged 17.1 points per game during his career with the Washington Wizards, Detroit Pistons, and Bulls.

Love Takes Himself Off Team USA


Minnesota Timberwovles/NBA(NEW YORK) -- Kevin Love won't be playing for Team USA in the FIBA World Cup this summer.

The 25-year-old Love is the center of trade speculation which led him to withdraw from the team.

"The fact is we can only look to the players we have available," Team USA managing director Jerry Colangelo said in a statement. "Our job is to get the job done with our very, very deep roster, and we're anxious to get things started."

There has been speculation that Love, who currently plays for the Minnesota Timberwolves, could be traded to a number of teams, with Cleveland being the likeliest destination. But Cavaliers rookie Andrew Wiggins, who would probably be a center piece of the deal, just signed a contract with Cleveland and can't be traded for 30 days (Aug. 23)

Love won gold medals with Team USA at the 2012 Olympics and 2010 world championship.

The 6-foot-10, 260 pound forward has played in six NBA seasons averaging 19.2 points, 12.2 boards and 2.7 assists per game.

Todd Warshaw/Getty Image(INDIANAPOLIS) -- Ty Dillon held off veteran driver Kyle Busch to earn his first Nationwide Series victory of his career Saturday, at Indianapolis Speedway.

Dillon passed Busch for the lead with 25 laps to go on the final restart of the race and never fell behind, as the 22-year-old got to kiss the bricks at Indianapolis.

"When you've got the best guy in the business behind you, it's tough," Dillon said. "It's tough to stay focused and not give up. I've raced against Brad (Keselowski) and Kyle (Busch) a lot, those guys are the best in the business."

It's Dillon's first win in 31 career Nationwide starts.

Matt Kenseth came in third followed by Kevin Harvick and Joey Logano.
