Cavaliers Trade Rumors: Possible Deals with Hornets 'Vaguely' Discussed

All that drama has left the Cavs at 30-21.

Finding a way to get past all of the conflict remains an uncertain task for the Cavaliers, with an early exit from the playoffs now considered to be a possibility.

"We got to do better", Thomas said. Colon, who has 240 career wins in 20 seasons with 10 teams, was a combined 7-14 with a 6.48 ERA for Atlanta and Minnesota last season.

Meanwhile, the Cavs front office has reportedly been looking to acquire Los Angeles Clippers' center DeAndre Jordan before the February 8th trade deadline. Gilbert has to be exhausted of being strung along by James every time such an opportunity presents itself, while also paying $137 million in salaries this season and millions more in luxury tax and the hefty repeater tax.

James attempted to dissuade the Cavaliers from trading Irving.

There never appeared to be any serious consideration of dealing away James mid-season, and Charania's report confirmed that.

According to Lloyd, things started to turn in the offseason when Gilbert did not renew then-GM David Griffin's contract.

All signs point to him being good to go, however, and if that's the case then we may be treated to an all-time Gronk performance. Louis Rams and presided over a train wreck of a 2-14 season, where three different quarterbacks started at least three games.

His contract has a no-trade clause, which means he can not be traded unless he waives it.

After the loss, Isaiah Thomas had a strikingly bad line, saying, "When adversity hits, we go our separate ways", according to ESPN's Dave McMenamin. Send out any less than that - Thompson, Thomas, and Iman Shumpert make $32.9 million combined, for instance - and Dan Gilbert pays several multiples of the difference.

Left in the dark and not even consulted throughout the process, as detailed in Lloyd's piece, it was only after the deal was essentially completed that Cavaliers general manager Koby Altman called James and said, "It's the best we can do". Brooklyn is among the bottom of the league and that pick will more than likely become a top 10 pick. He is eligible for free agency at the end of the campaign.

That, in turn, doesn't reflect well on the front office in James' eyes, according to USA Today's Sam Amick.

There has been no indication publicly that Gilbert wants to trade James, and a team official said last month James was the one player the Cavs absolutely would not deal. If the Cavaliers' front office is greasing the skids to push James out the door, they should be reminded of what happened the last time he left: four years of bad teams.

However, it's unclear what type of players the Cavs could target with that pick that could turn the team around. That spot is now held by the Detroit Pistons (25-26), who traded for Blake Griffin last week and have won three in a row, starting with a January 30 victory over the Cavs.
