The Cavs have spoken with unrestricted free agent David Nwaba.

If the Cavs do go ahead and unload Kyle Korver, they will be desperate for players to log wing minutes. Nwaba proved to be not just a defensive player as he put up 7.9 points per game with the Bulls, who rescinded their qualifying offer on him. If the Cavs do land him, he could be someone to watch on what looks like a rebuilding roster.

Treveon Graham went in for a workout with the Cavaliers on Monday.

Graham is an unrestricted free agent and he's received "strong interest" from both Cleveland and Minnesota. He's a solid 3-and-D wing, but he's not the type of player that will make a meaningful impact in fantasy hoops next season.

LeBron James has agreed to a four-year, $154 million deal with the Lakers.

Welcome to L.A., LeBron. The deal was announced by James' own agency, Klutch Sports, and it includes a player option in the fourth year. The length of the contract is still unexpected since he could have opted for another short-term pact to keep his options open. Instead he's committed fully to the Lakers, who should turn their full attention to acquiring another superstar to complement James -- in addition to trying to pry Kawhi Leonard away from the Spurs, they've also been rumored to have interest in DeMarcus Cousins. His decision should give teams around the league new clarity on their own offseason plans, so expect a domino effect of deals in the next 48 hours. The era of LeBron James as a Laker has begun.

The Cavs have reportedly made calls to the Spurs regarding Kawhi Leonard.

There's a chance this story was leaked to the media by the Cavs brass in an effort to try and entice LeBron James to remain in Cleveland, so take it with a grain of salt. The Cavs really don't have much to offer that would move the needle on a Leonard-deal, and Kawhi hasn't mentioned Cleveland as a destination he's trying to get to, so it would certainly be surprising to see him wind up there.

According to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Raptors "have tried to work their way into the DeAndre Jordan trade mix."

The Cavaliers are firmly in the mix and the Bucks are also rumored to be interested, but LAC's asking price is likely still very high. The Raptors would likely need a third team to help facilitate a deal, but if they are serious about adding Jordan, you would think Jonas Valanciunas goes elsewhere. No deal is imminent for now.

The trade that would have sent George Hill to Cleveland was held up because the Cavs wanted Hill to agree to a buyout if LeBron James left as a free agent next summer.

"George Hill, they didn’t want to buy him out this year," said Brian Windhorst of ESPN. "What they wanted to do was protect themselves in the event that, if LeBron James left, whether George Hill would be willing to take a buyout on the $20 million he’s owed on his contract after this season." Essentially the Cavs asked Hill to sacrifice $20 million in guaranteed money if LBJ opted to leave, and Hill wasn't feeling that. Anything could happen, but at this point, a trade seems unlikely.

The Cavs and Kings remain engaged in a deal that would send George Hill to Cleveland, according to sources of Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Iman Shumpert and Channing Frye have been the primary players involved on Cleveland's side of the conversation, but with 15 players already on the roster in Sacramento, they'd need to include someone else to make the deal work. While a move away from Sacramento would help Hill's rest-of-season potential, going to Cleveland's backcourt where he'd fight for minutes with the likes of Isaiah Thomas and Dwyane Wade isn't exactly ideal either.

The Trail Blazers have reportedly engaged with the Clippers in trade talks regarding DeAndre Jordan.

Portland, Milwaukee and Cleveland have all reached out to Los Angeles regarding Jordan's availability, but thus far, the Clippers have not received a proposal that they find "seriously tempting," according to sources of Marc Stein of the New York Times. Jordan could be one of the biggest names moved at the deadline, although with the Clippers currently sitting on the No. 8 seed out West, there's less incentive to move him.
Jan 22 - 2:17 PM

Derrick Favors could be a potential trade target for the Cavs, according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

Cleveland is looking to add some size, and Favors is available, so it'll be interesting to see if anything becomes of this report. Favors value in Cleveland would depend on the moving pieces, but it's tough to see him improving his stock with the Cavs. He's also been linked to the Bulls, but his value would likely take a hit there if they didn't also move Robin Lopez.

The Celtics earned their fourth straight win on Sunday, led by Kyrie Irving's game-high 28 points, eight rebounds, four 3-pointers, two assists, two steals and one block.

Boston was coming off a massive comeback victory vs. Houston, in a game they one trailed by 26 points, and they fended off the visiting Nets tonight, 108-105. Irving sank 10-of-21 shots and all four of his free throw attempts, and he's scored at least 20 points in 11 consecutive games. Boston's next game comes Wednesday vs. LeBron James, Isaiah Thomas and the visiting Cavaliers.

In wake of the Blake Griffin (knee) injury, the Clippers could test the market on DeAndre Jordan.

Jordan will most likely be opting out of his contract this summer in order to hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent, and considering how close he came to leaving in 2015, the Clippers may want to see what they can get for him now rather than risk watching him walk as a free agent. The Cavs have been rumored to have interest in DJ, and the Clippers phone lines will assuredly be heating up as the trade deadline approaches. In terms of fantasy hoops, a trade away from Los Angeles wouldn't necessarily be a bad thing.

Victor Oladipo played 28 minutes in a blowout victory on Tuesday, finishing with 14 points, four boards, two assists, one steal, one block and one 3-pointer.

VO's impressive season continues unabated, and the Pacers have a 4-3 record even though Myles Turner hasn't played since opening night. Oladipo is cruising along as a first-round value in 8-cat leagues, with a minor hit in 9-cat due to his 3.3 turnovers per game. He'll be rested and ready for Wednesday's game vs. the Cavaliers, whose defense has been abysmal this season.

Dwyane Wade and the Bulls have agreed to a contract buyout.

Wade was owed $23.8 million but he'll leave approximately $8 million on the table in the buyout, which allows him to sign elsewhere as a free agent. With training camps imminent it shouldn't take long for Wade to strike a new deal -- Adrian Wojnarowski reports that the Cavs are the "clear frontrunner," but the Spurs, Heat and Thunder are also mentioned as possibilities.
Sun, Sep 24, 2017 09:37:00 PM

Dwyane Wade will reportedly consider Miami, Cleveland and Los Angeles if he reaches a buyout with Chicago.

To be clear, no buyout talks have yet been initiated between Wade and the Bulls, but given the current direction of the Chicago franchise, it just doesn't make much sense for the 35-year-old veteran to remain on the roster. There have, however, been rumors that the Bulls may want to use Wade as a trade chip this season, so we might not see the two sides initiate buyout talks until after the trade deadline.

Kyrie Irving will officially join the Celtics after they agreed to trade terms with Cleveland on Wednesday.

The Celtics are throwing in a second-round pick in 2020 to close this deal, which was in limbo due to questions about Isaiah Thomas' injured hip. They got their guy in the end, landing a 25-year-old, four-time All-Star to spearhead the offense. Kyrie should fare well in the Celtics' pass-happy attack, and his 3-point totals could be lofty -- he went 40.1 percent from deep on 6.1 attempts per game last season, while Thomas launched 8.5 threes per game for Boston.
Wed, Aug 30, 2017 10:33:00 PM

The Celtics are reportedly unwilling to add Jaylen Brown, Jayson Tatum or a first-round pick to their existing offer for Kyrie Irving.

Chris Mannix told CSNNE that the Celtics might add a second-round pick to appease the Cavs, but it doesn't sound like they'll go any further. Tatum was already deemed off-limits and it's no surprise to see Brown and future first-round picks added to the list, as they're already ceding significant value in the deal. All signs point to Brown remaining a significant part of Boston's rotation this season.
Sun, Aug 27, 2017 09:26:00 PM

The Celtics and Cavs have reportedly engaged in "serious" discussions regarding a trade that would send Kyrie Irving to Boston in a package that would include Isaiah Thomas and draft picks.

The teams are still fine tuning the deal, but initial reports indicate that Jae Crowder and Ante Zizic would also be included in the package that Boston would send to Cleveland in exchange for Irving. In terms of fantasy hoops, Thomas wouldn't be quite the same usage monster he was with the Celtics as a member of the Cavs, and Derrick Rose would somewhat complicate the equation, so he'd likely see a slight dip in value in Cleveland. Crowder might not even start with the Cavs, so his value would take a fairly large hit.

Dwyane Wade's children have reportedly moved back to south Florida to attend school.

Wade's kids went to school in Chicago last year, so the move back to Florida will continue to fuel rumors that Wade is seeking a buyout with the Bulls so that he could reunite with Pat Riley in Miami. The Heat do have enough cap space to make a competitive offer to Wade should he hit the open market, but the Bulls also could have the incentive to keep Wade and try and use him as a trade chip as the deadline approaches. There are also rumors out there that Wade could consider reuniting with LeBron James in Cleveland post-buyout, but as of right now, nothing seems imminent.
