(AP Photo/Tony Dejak, File)INDEPENDENCE, Ohio — With one deadline looming on his future in Cleveland, LeBron James has been in contact with the Cavaliers through his representatives.Following the NBA draft on Thursday night, Cavs general manager Koby Altman said he has had positive discussions with the three-time champion’s group.

And then Collin, we got to get there with experience as well. But like he (James) says, experience is the best teacher, and we gave those guys a great experience over 30 games and into the playoffs and into the Finals, and what does that mean for us moving forward, I think it’s all really positive.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Christopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 Volcano watch: Island fissures steaming, lake water receding View comments The Cavs can offer him a five-year, $209 million deal this time. It’s possible James could choose to sign a one-year deal again with a player option and go through the free-agency dance again next summer.To look more appealing to James, the Cavs need to upgrade their roster and they took a significant step by selecting Alabama point guard Collin Sexton with the No. 8 overall pick. Sexton averaged 19.2 points as a freshman and he addresses the club’s biggest need — a playmaker to fill the void left when the Cavs traded All-Star Kyrie Irving last summer.Altman hopes Sexton’s arrival will make the Cavs more attractive to James.The 19-year-old lacks professional experience, but Altman pointed out that James dealt with that issue this season.“He went through it this year a little bit with some of our young guys, especially in the playoffs,” Altman said. “What’s amazing, he talks about this all the time — the best teacher is experience. And our young guys got some really good experience this year. And while it wasn’t consistent throughout the playoffs, each guy had their moments. And we went through two Game 7s and got to a Finals, and that experience is a huge teacher for those guys.ADVERTISEMENT “We continue to have good dialogue with his management team,” Altman said. “I think LeBron has more than earned the right to approach his contracts the way he does. He’s done that before, so this is nothing new for us. We want to respect his space during this process and I continue to have really good dialogue with his management team as he goes through that process.“That’s probably all I can say at this point regarding him, but we don’t take him for granted. We love him, this city loves him. He means the world to us and this franchise.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownJames led the Cavs to their fourth straight NBA Finals this season, carrying a team that endured injuries and a roster overhaul at the trading deadline.

Region 2 residents picket PM’s visit

first_img…call for Govt’s resignation…express no confidence in Agriculture MinisterHours after acting Chief Justice Roxanne George, SC, ruled that the December 21, 2018, resolution of the motion of no-confidence against the A Partnership for National Unity -Alliance For Change (APNU/AFC) Government was validly passed, Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo was rejected by the residents of Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) as he visited the region for a meeting.Essequibo Coast residents protesting at State House, Anna Regina on FridayHundreds of residents, particularly persons from the business sector and rice farmers, staged a picketing exercise as the Prime Minister made his way to the State House in Anna Regina on Friday for a series of meetings with the farmers and business persons.The frustrated farmers on the picket line, told Guyana Times that prior to being defeated by the no-confidence motion, the PM never cared for the development of the region or it’s rapidly declining economic state.“Why he visiting us now when the rice industry is already dead and buried? He promised us $9000 per bag of paddy, we give him our votes and he never deliver. He helped to kill the industry by saying rice is private business. He can fool us most of the time but not all the time. His Government has fallen. We support the no-confidence motion. Go home Nagamootoo, we don’t need you in Region 2,” one protester said.Rice farmers were among the residents who rejected the PM’s visitThe protesters bore several placards with messages such as “Moses is a de facto Prime Minister since December 21st, 2018…No confidence vote must be respected…treat farmers with respect…33 is greater than 32…Government must resign now, announce election date now…farmers can’t survive on $300 per bag urgent help needed.”Meanwhile, at the meeting at State House, some of the rice farmers who decided to go to the meeting told the Prime Minister that they have lost all confidence in the ability of Agriculture Minister Noel Holder, who was also present at the meeting. They informed the PM that they never got any help from Holder since he never took the time to listen to their concerns or provide them with tangible assistance to aid in the betterment of the struggling rice industry. They also questioned the motive of the Government as it relates to the sudden meeting with, particularly, the farmers.Additionally, during the meeting, the farmers accused Nagamootoo of neglecting the region and its residents, explaining that the only time they seem to care is around elections time.At the beginning of 2019, the rice farmers were advised to be judicious in the use of irrigation water since the water level of the Tapakuma Conservancy had dropped significantly as a result of minimum rainfall during this rainy season. The National Drainage and Irrigation Authority (NDIA) had said that despite its pumps working beyond the scheduled operating hours, the level of irrigation water in the main canal continued to be insufficient to adequately service all rice fields in both the front and backlands areas.last_img read more
