The streaking-hot Cleveland Cavaliers are always trying to find ways to improve their chances of getting to the NBA Finals as the Eastern Conference champion.

The so-called experts have said that they need one more player with an inside presence and to add frontcourt depth.

They may have had a player chose them!

It has been reported by TV, Radio and Newspaper reports that former Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kendrick Perkins has signed a contract with the Cavs.The team has not announced it officially and neither has Perkins said anything about where he will end up. Although Perkins did say he would not mind playing with LeBron James. Those reports have also stated the announcement will come on Monday.

Perkins would be a good fit. The 6’10, 270-pound 30-year-old, won an NBA championship with the Boston Celtics in 2008.

Perkins was waived on Saturday by the Utah Jazz, who had acquired him in a trade deadline deal with the Thunder.

Oklahoma City Thunder to be without Perkins for six weeks

The Oklahoma City Thunder will be without the services of center Kendrick Perkins for six weeks due to surgery on his left groin.

The 29-year-old Perkins was injured during the February 20 game against the Miami Heat. He did not play on Sunday against the LA Clippers.

The 6’10, 270-pound Perkins was drafted out of Clifton J. Ozen High School in Beaumont, Texas in the spring of 2003 by the Memphis Grizzlies.

He led Ozen High to four consecutive district championships and one state championship during his high school career. Averaging 27.5 points, 16.4 rebounds and 7.8 blocked shots a game as a Senior, he led Ozen to a 33–1 record, with the only loss being a 66–54 setback to Fort Worth Dunbar in the state 4A championship game.

Former OSU star Mullens gets traded to Charlotte Bobcats

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.

The old Celtics are saved by the young Rajon Rondo, again!

compiled from staff and wire reports

Rajon Rondo has saved the Celtics so many times during their playoff drive. But Sunday night, he may have saved their championship hopes.

Rondo had his fifth postseason triple-double with 19 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists to lead the Celtics to a 103-94 win over the Los Angeles Lakers, which evened up the NBA finals at one game apiece.

Rondo made the go-ahead basket with 3:21 remaining, picking up a loose ball after Kendrick Perkins’ shot was blocked and putting it back up and in to make the score 91-90. He blocked Derek Fisher’s short a few minutes later, then made a big jump shot that extended the lead to 95-90 with 1:50 to play.

Ray Allen was the second Celtic to step up big-time. He led the team in the first half with seven 3-pointers and 27 points but was shut down in the second half.

The Orlando Magic, who looked like they were going to be swept in four games, have come off the mat to win their second in a row over Boston.

The Magic took another leap in trying to overcome the improbable 3-0 series deficit as Dwight Howard scored 21 points and 10 rebounds to lead them to a  113-92 win over Boston on Wednesday night in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference finals.

The series moves back to Boston on Friday. The Celtics look every vulnerable right now because starting center Kendrick Perkins picked up his seventh technical of the playoffs, which is a mandatory suspension. Glen Davis sustained a concussion last night and couldn’t keep his balanced and had to be helped by referee Joey Crawford from falling flat on the floor. Marquis Daniels got elbowed and Rasheed Wallace hurt his back.

Game 7 would be in Orlando. Of the the 93 teams who have fallen into an 0-3 hole, only three have even forced a Game 7.

Jameer Nelson scored 24 points, and J.J. Redick had 14 to help the Magic beat Boston up and down the floor.

Rasheed Wallace scored 21 points and Rajon Rondo had 19 for Boston.
