NBA Trade Rumors: The Cleveland Cavaliers will look to add a guard at the NBA Trade Deadline.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have been one of the most interesting surprise teams in the NBA. Through roughly 30-plus games, they haven’t slowed down and appear to have staying power among the top 8 in the Eastern Conference.
Currently, the Cavs are 19-13 and sitting in the 4th spot of the East – and only three games out of the top seed. Though, if they’re going to maintain a top 6 seed in the East, they’re going to need some offensive reinforcements. They have an 18th ranked offense at the moment and if they’re going to be a true threat in the conference, they’re going to need some help – or at least more consistency – on that end of the floor.
And after losing Collin Sexton, that became that much more difficult.
In an effort to shore up the team’s depth, especially as a new COVID-19 variant continues to run rampant across the league – it would be wise for the Cavs to enter this year’s trade season as buyers.
And according to recent reports, that’s exactly how they’re going to approach the deadline. A few players, reportedly, that they could target for such a role include Caris LeVert, Joe Harris, and Terrence Ross.
Should the Cavs be able to land one of these wings, there’s no question that they become that much more solidified as a threat. Right now, it’s hard to label Cleveland as what they could be or what they are. However, there should be a high level of excitement for this team.
In the post-LeBron era, this is the first time that the Cavs have figured out how the build a team that carries a level of expectation and excitement – especially for the fan base.
The Cavs are going to be buyers at the trade deadline. I can’t remember the last time that was stated without LeBron attached to the franchise.
