Cavs Plan To Keep Nets Pick As Backup Plan for ‘LeBron Stuff’

Published

on

The Cleveland Cavaliers are always a team that is heavily discussed whenever the NBA rumor mill starts turning but for those of you expecting a blockbuster trade involving the valuable Brooklyn Nets pick, it won’t be happening.

“They would be open to a deal by all indications” Sean Deveney of Sporting News reported, citing an anonymous general manager.

“But they’re not talking about that pick. That’s the Plan B for the LeBron stuff and from what I know, they don’t want to budge on it.”

James has a player option after this season that would allow him to leave Cleveland and sign with another team, a scenario that is becoming more and more likely.

Another general manager told Deveney that the talk of Cleveland holding on to the Nets pick could be a “smoke screen” to drive up value in any trade talks.

Regardless, Cleveland has to consider it’s options if it does lose LeBron to free agency. The Cavs also have to decide what to do about Isaiah Thomas as well.

Cleveland Cavaliers veteran forward Kevin Love believes that his life has a greater purpose beyond being a productive and successful player in the National Basketball Association and is embracing his role as the league’s unofficial ambassador on mental health.

“I feel like I have a purpose, for the greater good,” Love said, according to The Athletic’s Joe Vardon. “For the first 10 years, for better or worse, that’s what I felt like for basketball. Learning what I needed to learn. Now I’m just starting to work on myself off the court. That’s going to lead to helping people and paying it forward. I think it is good to be busier when you’re working, putting the same time into things that are super valuable.”
