Mitch Lawrence of the New York Daily News was all over the Luol Deng trade earlier this season, beating Chicago reporters to the punch. So one assumes that when he now reports what a source close to Deng is saying, it has merit.
What Deng's friend is saying:
[Deng has] seen players get thrown out of practice, take off their uniform tops at halftime and threaten not to play, mouth off to Brown and generally act like spoiled brats. [...]
Oh, it's more talk about Dion Waiters being a locker room problem! You may remember that there were rumors he and Kyrie Irving got into a fistfight early this season. This is a total mess, and frankly -- unlike some other chemistry problems in the league -- Waiters isn't good enough to be causing problems. If what Lawrence reports is true, Cavs GM Chris Grant may need to sell off Waiters by the deadline in a last-ditch effort to resurrect the team before he gets canned in April. (Mike Brown might very well need that, too.)
UPDATE: Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal follows up with more, including a confirmation of some of Lawrence's claims.
