Tristan Thompson, Kevin Love, J.R. Smith, Matthew Dellavedova, and Iman Shumpert are up for sale before the deadline. The Cavs are looking for significant exchanges like Ryan Anderson or Channing Frye.
The Cavs re-signed Thompson and Love on a multi-year deal last off-season. J.R. Smith and Dellavedova were also signed by the Cavs last off-season. Timofey Mozgov becomes an unrestricted free agent during the off-season, reports Real GM.
The Cavs have already made moves to trade off Kevin Love and Anderson Varejao, as reported by Morning News USA earlier. The Cavs are looking for a potential third party in the Varejao-Frye deal like the Portland Trail Blazers or the Philadelphia 76ers with considerable cap space so they can absorb Varejao’s salary, according to ESPN.
Indeed, the Cleveland Cavaliers can make any move for a shot at the NBA title. The equations to find a winning combination centering LeBron James and Kyrie Irving are on.
