Cavs Willing To Trade Nets' Pick For Player On 'Short List'

06 February 2018

The 30-21 Cleveland Cavaliers looked nothing like a playoff team during Saturday's 120-88 loss to the Houston Rockets, but head coach Tyronn Lue isn't anxious about potentially missing the postseason.

According to McMenamin, Lue raised an eyebrow at even being asked the question.

The Cavs have lost six of their last 10 games, including their last two Saturday primetime games by an average of 28 points, and are now just 1/2 game up on the Wizards for third place in the Eastern Conference. Everyone assumes the team is going to do something, but for a squad that is trying to figure out whether it makes sense to go all-in when there's no guarantee LeBron James returns next season, the move (or moves) they make may not be blockbuster-worthy.

The Cavs are willing to part ways with the Brooklyn Nets' first-round pick in the 2018 NBA Draft in order to acquire a player on their "short list" of targets, ESPN's Bobby Marks reported Monday, citing NBA sources.

"I don't think we'll be knocked out of the playoffs, no", coach Tyronn Lue said.

But some users received what appeared to be an actual tsunami warning on their devices. No Tsunami warning is in effect for the East Coast of the U.S.

It's preposterous, reject-out-of-hand outlandish to say out loud that a team with James is going to fail to finish in the top eight in the East.

"We gotta stop worrying about the past", James said over the weekend. "I don't think anybody's here not to make the playoffs".

With the trade deadline just three days away, Lue said he has no drastic lineup changes planned for Tuesday's game against the Orlando Magic and Wednesday's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves.

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

As it pertains to the Cavs' interest in the Clippers' DeAndre Jordan, a person with knowledge of that situation said Cleveland continues to offer only its own first-round pick and this kind of unwanted money in those stalled negotiations. "My focus is to try to get the guys to win and playing better".
