Cavaliers' LeBron James: Opts out of Olympic games
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

James won't play for Team USA in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com reports.

In a widely expected move, James joins a slew of American players electing to sit out the Games. James is coming off a very long season that ended with his third NBA championship, so he'll take some time off to get a much-needed break from the grind. James has already stated he'll be back with the Cavaliers next season, so the Finals MVP can keep his focus on preparing for another title run in 2016-17.

Cavaliers' LeBron James: Says he'll return to Cleveland next season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

James told USA Today's Jeff Zillgitt on Wednesday that he will return to the Cavaliers next season.

The Cavaliers held their championship parade in Cleveland on Wednesday, and while it's possible that James, who claimed his third NBA Finals MVP award, was swept up in the emotion of the event, there was little doubt that he'd leave his hometown team this summer. He's still expected to opt out of the final season of his two-year contract to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1, but James is likely only doing so to increase his earnings with the salary cap set to rise. James figures to sign another short-term deal as the Cavaliers look to further flesh out the roster around him.

Cavaliers' Matthew Dellavedova: Doesn't play in championship-clinching win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dellavedova (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in Sunday's 93-89 Game 7 win over the Warriors.

A major figure in the Cavs' NBA Finals loss to the Warriors a season ago, Dellavedova saw his role almost disappear entirely this time around. Aside from a controversial foul on the Warriors' Andre Iguodala in Game 1, Dellavedova was largely non-existent in the series, and ended up falling to third on the depth chart at point guard behind Kyrie Irving and Mo Williams. He logged eight minutes or fewer in each of the final five games of the Finals.

Cavaliers' Dahntay Jones: Doesn't play in Game 7 loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in Sunday's 93-89 Game 7 win over the Warriors.

Sunday marked the first game of the series that wasn't decided by more than 11 points, so there were no garbage time minutes to be had for Jones and the Cavs' bench mob. That's probably not an issue for the 35-year-old, who will now come away with his first NBA title after having only played one regular-season game with the Cavs.

Cavaliers' Iman Shumpert: Scores six points in Game 7 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Shumpert contributed six points (1-3 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 3-3 FT) and one rebound across 19 minutes in Sunday's 93-89 Game 7 win over the Warriors.

With the Cavaliers struggling from downtown in the first half, Shumpert stepped up to provide their first trey of the night, and made it a four-point play after he converted on the foul shot. He wouldn't make much of an impact over the rest of his time on the court, but Shumpert's six points ended up being his most since Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Raptors.
