Pest is prologue: Bed bug problems in Oklahoma City over the weekend come back to bite Cavaliers in loss to Pistons

CLEVELAND — The bed bugs bit the Cavaliers again, only this time in a figurative sense.

CLEVELAND — It was the Cavaliers’ first game in eight days and first in almost 12 years without Anderson Varejao as part of the franchise.

CLEVELAND — The Cavaliers added a veteran power forward with 3-point range, traded another future first-round draft pick and parted ways with longtime fan favorite Anderson Varejao hours before the 3 p.m. trade deadline Thursday.

Cavaliers looking to land a shooter who can play some ‘D’

The Cavaliers could make a move prior to the NBA trade deadline of 3 p.m. Thursday, but New York’s Carmelo Anthony won’t be coming to Cleveland.
