Cavs Mull Trade Proposals For Brendan Haywood

WEDNESDAY, 1:53pm: Several options for trading Haywood are now on the table for the Cavs, Windhorst reports (Twitter link).

3:53pm: Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal hears talks regarding Haywood between the two teams haven’t taken place (Twitter link).

2:59pm: The Cavs are looking for a scoring point guard, Monroe hears, seemingly somewhat different from the facilitator that Windhorst reported Cleveland was seeking.

TUESDAY, 2:07pm: The Spurs and Cavs are talking about trade ideas involving Brendan Haywood and his uniquely valuable non-guaranteed contract, a league source tells Mike Monroe of the San Antonio Express-News (on Twitter). GM David Griffin has more or less confirmed the team is shopping Haywood, who allows Cleveland to take on an eight-figure salary in return while giving the team that acquires him the chance to clear cap room. That could be key for the Spurs in their quest to sign LaMarcus Aldridge or another marquee free agent while keeping their core intact.

San Antonio was confident about its chances to re-sign Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard and still ink Aldridge or another max-level free agent, as Marc Stein of wrote. The Spurs are reportedly making Tiago Splitter available for a trade, but dealing him away isn’t a necessity for San Antonio to achieve its goals, Stein also wrote.

Cleveland has appeared to be shooting relatively low as it looks for taker. The Cavs want a facilitating guard who can either back up or play alongside Kyrie Irving, as Brian Windhorst of wrote earlier this month. Still, Haywood’s contract, a quirk of the amnesty clause, could net the Cavs as much as $15,522,500 in incoming salary, though that figure would be tricky, the Cleveland poised to exceed the tax threshold. Even if they’re over the tax line, the Cavs could still bring in as much as $13,253,125.

    Cavs need a backup pg from the spurs…Patti mills? Danny green possibly? I like. I like!

      Danny Green is a unrestricted FA so unless it’s a sign and trade, I don’t see it happening.

    Tiago splitter for cavs 1st round pick 2017 and brendan haywood good trade for both cavs fan all day

    • KnicksCavsFan

      That’s actually a horrible deal for the Cavs. The Haywood contract is EXTREMELY valuable because it allows the Cavs to attract a star caliber players SALARY or, at the very least, allow a team in transition to move a vet contract and open up salary space.

      Not to mention it would be a bad trade because we already have 2 centers under contract (Mozgov and Varejao) and we’re trying to retain 2 power forwards (Thompson and Love). What purpose would Splitter serve.

      I don’t think the Cavs would want to part with Varejao both because it depletes their depth at the PF/C position but also because he’s a LBJ favorite.

      Moving Varejao’s contract wouldn’t be bad thing tho if it weren’t for the risk of pissing LBJ off.

    Sign and trade for Cory Joseph? SA can sign Aldridge, then waive Haywood and re-sign the rest of their core?

    • KnicksCavsFan

      That doesn’t help the Cavs at all and would in fact be a poor waste of the Haywood contract. Joseph can just be signed for the Cavs as he wouldn’t demand an unreasonable salary.
