It seems like the Cavaliers fans have finally gotten some positive news this offseason. While there were many rumors and speculations about Cleveland potentially landing Carmelo Anthony or Paul George this summer, that didn't happen. George ended up with the Oklahoma City Thunder, and Anthony is still in New York. Jimmy Butler was also mentioned as the possible Cavs acquisition but he got traded to the Timberwolves. It appears now that the Cavs have turned their focus on getting some other pieces. Earlier this week they re-signed Kyle Korver and acquired veteran point-guard Jose Calderon. On Wednesday night it was reported that the Cavs will also have Richard Jefferson on their roster next season.

Jefferson not retiring after all

After the season ended and the Cavaliers lost to the Warriors in the Finals, Jefferson hinted that he might retire and not turn back for the 2017/2018 season. The news didn't come as a much of a surprise since Jefferson just turned 37 in June and has already played 16 seasons in the NBA. Last season with the Cavaliers he averaged 5.7 points and 2.6 rebounds per game and he was often required to guard the best player on the opposing team. He played limited minutes in the playoffs, but his leadership and experience seem to be very valuable for the Cavaliers.

On Wednesday, Jefferson hosted the latest episode of his podcast called "Road Trippin" and announced that he will return next season after all.

"I will be starting my 17th season next year; I am not retiring," said RJ. The Cavaliers will pay him $2.5 million for the next season as they look to compete for the championship again. The news about Jefferson's return will most likely be welcomed by LeBron James also, as Jefferson is considered as one of the favorite LeBron's teammates.

OKC keep Andre Roberson

It has been an exciting summer for the Oklahoma City Thunder so far. After they saw their point guard Russell Westbrook, win the league MVP award, the Thunder continued to make noise with their roster improvement. They acquired Paul George via trade from the Indiana Pacers, and earlier this week they signed a free-agent Patrick Patterson.

Earlier today, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported that OKC and Andre Roberson have agreed to a three-year deal. Roberson was a restricted free-agent this summer, and he agreed to sign a contract worth $30 million over the next three years.

Roberson is one of the premier defenders in the NBA and last season with the Thunder he averaged 6.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. The way things are looking now, OKC will be a serious contender in the Western Conference next season.
