NBA Trade Rumors: Cavs Looking To Make Deal Before The Deadline

With the NBA trade deadline (Feb. 20) rapidly approaching, teams around the NBA are starting to assess their situation in terms of competing for a playoff spot or looking towards the future. One team that may be very active leading up to the deadline is the Cleveland Cavaliers.

As a result of the season being a huge disappointment for the Cavs, the struggling franchise seems ready to shake things up yet again. Cleveland is reportedly ready to make deals unless there’s a drastic turnaround in the coming weeks according to Jason Lloyd of Akron Beacon Journal:

Two sources close to the team confirmed that barring a significant turnaround before the trade deadline, this roster will likely face some upheaval. That very well could include Waiters, whose act has worn thin on his teammates and various members of the organization.

Last month, the Cavs decided to part ways with Andrew Bynum, sending the two-time NBA champion to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for Luol Deng. The Los Angeles Lakers appeared to be the verge of making a deal with the Cavs to acquire and then release Bynum for Pau Gasol, but the deal fell through.

The move to acquire Deng appeared to be the right one, but it hasn’t been a game-changer the Cavs were looking for. As a result of the team continuing to struggle, Cleveland may pull the trigger on another big trade before the deadline with Dion Waiters potentially being the player sent packing.

    EFF Gilbert and the Cavs!! They had a chance to trade Waiters to us in the Gasol Bynum deal but they acted like punks again (CP3 trade nix) by pitting in our face offering trash instead.

    • C*HarrisTHEboss

      Seriously – Gilbert penning a letter bitching and whining to Stern at the league office about how the Lakers conduct business. That kinda stuff is unforgivable.

      • wildrover4

        The letter only mattered because the league owned the Pelicans. It wasn’t just Gilbert who weighed in on the deal.

        • C*HarrisTHEboss

          Well, he never mentioned a conflict of interest in his letter or the Pelicans at all for that matter.

      • Eric Hoover

        Whats unforgivable is the how Lakers fans thought they could drop a pile of crap in New Orleans and have Chris Paul in return. Dan Gilbert should be applauded for the way he stood up to the 2 or 3 NBA organizations who feel they deserve to be in the NBA finals every year without having to go through any kind of rebuilding pains. What on earth was a rebuilding team like New Orleans going to do with Pau, Crackhead Odem, and Luis Scola. That sounds like NBA pergatory to me. You guys are going to have to find something else to riot about for the time being.

    • Laker fans are idiots

      Trading a talented young player for a rental would have been moronic. If they trade him, it will be for something they will have long term. Just another unrealistic spoiled Lakers fan who thinks other NBA teams should screw themselves to help the Lakers.

      • lakeshow bitches

        Stupid trade, so the suns technically give up 3 first round picks, Alex len (5th overall 2013) Archie goodwin (29th overall 2013)+2014 frist round pick from Minn. and we get back Spencer Hawes=bum, Alonzo Gee=terrible, toney woten= bum

        • Ronald Velez

          What your flat out crazy! Spencer Hawes is not a bum. He is a solid big man with great skills, shooting ability and rebounder. Alonzo Gee may not be a household name but he’s a decent player who plays well on occasion. Toney Wroten is a solid player who is averaging over 10pts agame. Archie Goodwin is a good prospect but he was drafted low in a bad draft class with the number 1 overall pick playing terrible, along with other high drafted players and an injured center in Nerlens Noel who was suppose to be the top pick.

          • canada

            Even if they are decent players, the three first round draft picks (even though two are current players) is too much for what they are receiving in return. The big man would have to be all-star quality like a Joakim Noah for the suns to consider 3 picks or two young players. Also, the suns love Alex Len and believe him to be a starter next year or in two years, not something you look to trade when an asset is at its lowest price. Also, the 76ers would not part with Nerlens Noel for 1 year with Pau. Also the are looking for picks, not first year players who came from one of the weakest draft classes. Pau is an interesting idea since his contract is expiring but the contract is too much money and the sixers are looking to get worse at the deadline, not aquire a superstar. This trade would not happen, Phoenix gets ripped off, Clevend gets nothing in return, and the sixers would never trade Noel. The only winners are the Lakers, and nobody is excited to see that happen.

          • Ronald Velez

            Noah is a solid Center but he is not worth 3 picks or two young players. Besides the two young players are prospects and barely play. The Suns drafted Len because they wanted a center and they also acquired draft picks because they wanted to tank but with the way the season has turned out, the Suns are rethinking their plans. Len is a center who could be solid in the future but I’m sure the Suns would listen to offers for Len if it meant improving the roster. Plumme has been a pleasant surprise and is helping the Suns win. His athleticism, size, youth, speed and hustle makes him a great asset. I’m sure the Suns would not trade him because he is part of their success. Archie is good but he is a D league player with potential. You could afford to let him go because your building your team around Eric Bledsoe who is the star of the team. Where is Archie going to find minutes knowing he’s playing behind Dragic, Bledsoe, Tucker, Barbosa, Green, like really? I agree with you about the Sixers trading Noel because I don’t see it but I loved Noel at Kentucky and really like his game since the Lakers could use a center like him on the cheap. I think the only way the Sixers would trade him is if they got some young studs and picks for him. With this years draft they can replace Turner, Young and Nerlens because they will be bad and have multiple picks.

          • wantafanta104

            Why would phoenix give up a young center they just drafted with unlimited potential for a center who been in the league 6 years and has decent numbers on terrible teams. Don’t get caught up on his numbers to much, hes never played for any good teams, he would be back up on most legit contenders. Archie goodwin is 19, the youngest player in the nba, he just got sent down to the D league for 2 games and put up 25+ both games and came right back up. Im not saying hes going to be a stud i’m just saying that would be extremely dumb to trade him when you don’t even know his potential. And don’t get me started on Tony Wroten and his 12 pts a game. His.405 fg% is awful and again plays on a terrible team which brings up his pts per game. You must be a 76ers fan or Lakers because that really doesn’t make sense.

          • Ronald Velez

            I think your putting too much value into Len and Goodwin. They are good prospects but they aren’t great players. Just because Archie put up good numbers in the D league doesn’t mean nothing because no one plays defense and it’s evident when you see scores like 143 to 124. D league numbers are inflated because of the minutes guys play because there isn’t any competition to steal their minutes. If Archie and Len are that great then they should be able to crack the rotation but there are better players playing ahead of them.

          • wantafanta104

            okafor, archie goodwin, alex len, and 2 2014 first round draft picks for kevin love would be a way better deal for both teams

  • jason

    kyrie looks like a star on highlight reels but he is a joke a turnover queen and a ballhog. I wish Cleveland would trade him. “over rated primadonna”

  • Clint Jackson

    Fire coach Brown, trade Waiters. Immediately
