The young Cleveland Cavaliers are playing well early in the season before they go through a seven-game, 13-day road trip.

Recently, the Cavs beat the Charlotte Bobcats, 115-110 to improve to 3-2 overall. It’s the first time that Cleveland has been over the .500 mark since November 9, 2010.

Rookie point guard Kyrie Irving tied a career-high with 20 points for the Cavs and had no turnovers in 22 minutes.

Fellow rookie, forward Tristan Thompson collected career highs in points with 16 and nine rebounds.

D.J. Augustin led the Bobcats with 26 points and nine assists. Corey Meggette had 21 points and eight rebounds.

Former Ohio State center Byron Mullens may have received the break he’s been waiting for; a trade.

The Charlotte Bobcats acquired the 22-year-old native of Canal Winchester, Ohio from the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for a 2013 second-round draft choice.

The Bobcats hope he can pickup the void left by the loss of Kwame Brown, who left to sign with Golden State Warriors.

The 7-foot, 275-pound Mullens had an up-and-down player with the Thunder. He could not crack the regular or backup rotation playing behind Kendrick Perkins, Nazr Mohammed and Cole Aldrich and spent time in the NBA Developmental League with Tulsa more than in Oklahoma City.

He only played in 26 games the last two seasons.

When Byron Mullens, then known as B.J., decided to leave Ohio State after one season for the NBA, scouts, college basketball experts and media said he needed two or three seasons to develop more or his NBA career would be up-and-down.

Well, it seems everybody is right, because for the third time this season, the Oklahoma City Thunder has assigned the former Ohio State center to the Tulsa Oilers of the NBA Development League.

Mullens had played in 12 games this season for the Thunder, averaging 1.3 points and 1.6 rebounds.

In his previous two stints with Tulsa, the 7-footer started in all six of his appearances and averaged 16.7 points, 8.2 rebounds and 1.3 blocked shots.

When Byron Mullens left Ohio State as B.J. Mullens, NBA scouts said that he needed to stay at least one to two more years to develop. He needed to get stronger in all aspects of his game and even wasn’t even an every game starter.

But Mullens, like most players with his talent, only sees the money end of the NBA and not the reality of it.

Mullens has had a rocky road with the the Oklahoma Thunder.

A few days ago, the second-year center from Ohio State was sent to the minors to play for the Tulsa affiliate in the NBA Development League.

Mullens has played a total of 14 minutes in five games this season for the Thunder, who recently recalled rookie Cole Aldrich from the D-League.

Mullens, the 24th overall pick in the 2009 draft, played 27 games in the minors last season.
