2014-15 NBA schedule released
The 2014-15 NBA schedule is here, with some pretty sweet matchups highlighting the season's big days. The opening-night slate comprises Dallas Mavericks-San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets-Los Angeles Lakers. On Christmas, the Cleveland Cavaliers make their first trip to Miami since LeBron James left the Heat, while Western Conference titans Oklahoma City Thunder and San Antonio Spurs square off in Texas. It's all part of a regular season that promises to be compelling.
Love to Cavs for Wiggins, more
It's official: Kevin Love is a member of the Cleveland Cavaliers, joining LeBron James and Kyrie Irving on the new-look team. Meanwhile Andrew Wiggins, Anthony Bennett and Thaddeus Young will try to bring the Timberwolves back to the playoffs. There's no telling what could come of this -- Love is an excellent player, but Wiggins could end up being a superstar, and there's no guarantee whether James' second version of a big three will work out as well as the first.

Will Rose, Bulls be big in 2014-15?
Derrick Rose apparently is dazzling in Team USA training. Not only is he throwing down big dunks, but also has assistant Jim Boeheim calling him the "most impressive guy here." This is potentially big news for a former NBA MVP who has missed almost two full seasons with multiple injuries. Will he return to form? How will the Bulls, currently a top contender with the Cleveland Cavaliers in the East, fare in 2014-15?
Andrew Wiggins for Kevin Love?
The Cleveland Cavaliers officially signed Andrew Wiggins on Thursday, meaning he cannot be traded for 30 days. This gives the Minnesota Timberwolves at least that much time to decide whether to send star Kevin Love to Ohio (reportedly in a deal for the 2014 No. 1 overall pick, 2013 No. 1 overall pick Anthony Bennett and a future first-rounder). The Chicago Bulls also seem to have gotten into the mix (with Taj Gibson and Nikola Mirotic as part of their offer), and the Golden State Warriors (provided they trade Klay Thompson) long have been rumored. What will happen?
