Hello everyone and welcome to today's 'Fear the Newsletter', aka the 'Cavs traded for Mike Dunleavy edition.
One programming note; due to a work trip at my 'real' job, I will not be handling the newsletter the next few days. Carter Rodriguez will be sending it out Saturday through Tuesday.
If you have questions, concerns or complaints, drop me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. We hope you enjoy.

Matthew Dellavedova's time in Cleveland is at an end, as the Cavaliers completed a sign-and-trade with the Bucks yesterday to send Delly to Milwaukee. After the deal was officially announced, he posted a sincere message about his time in Cleveland on Twitter. Something tells me he'll be warmly received in his first game back at Quicken Loans Arena.
Now, the Cavs have to look to replace Delly. One option? Kay Felder, who might be something great despite his small stature.
LeBron James took to Twitter last night to speak out on Alton Sterling and Philando Castile. If you don't know who they were, go Google them and learn. And LeBron 100 percent deserves to be commended for speaking out on matters most athletes won't even touch.
In other news, the Mike Dunleavy trade has been made official and David Griffin against proved that he's a cap wizard in the process. In LeBron news, he's the cover star of issue 201 of SLAM Magazine.As a reminder, chat about free agency here and track all Cavs rumors here.
If you need a sick Cavs or NBA t-shirt, go support FtS' Daniel Rowell over on TeePublic. You may or may not see the header of his newsletter on a t-shirt in his store.
Things to read/listen to today: ESPNW's Kate Fagan on Allison Stokke not wanting to be your sex symbol, The Ringer's Jonathan Tjarks' five players to watch at summer league, SI's Ben Golliver's free agency winners and losers, The Washington Post's analysis that police shooting are up in 2016 and an old piece by Ta-Neshi Coates on the myth of police reform.
Also: on behalf of the FtS staff, our thoughts are with the people of Dallas this morning, even if that's not nearly enough.
That's it for today. We'll talk to you tomorrow. Be safe.
