Shelvin Mack Latest PG Linked To Cavaliers

The Cavaliers are in the market for a point guard and Marc Stein of ESPN has explored two potential fits. Given Cleveland’s abundance of trade exceptions, the team could make a deal for a veteran point guard and absorb the player’s contract that way. With their Anderson Varejao trade exception, which expires on February 20, the club could deal for Jazz point guard Shelvin Mack.

In 42 games for the Jazz, Mack has averaged 7.9 points and 2.9 assists. He’s owed $2.4MM on a deal that will expire this offseason.

Another option at the point, one that has been discussed previously this week, is Nuggets guard Jameer Nelson. The 34-year-old is owed $4.5MM this season, which would necessitate the use of the $4.8MM trade exception the team procured in last month’s Kyle Korver trade.

Nelson has averaged 8.8 points and 4.6 assists per game in 45 tilts with Denver so far in 2016/17.

    Why would Utah move Mack, who is a combo guard that can guard both positions and shoot, to Cleveland for nothing?

      because maybe they want to see how Exum could do with extended minutes.

    • And health permitting, he’s playing behind Hill, Hood, and Burks. Exum can fill in his minutes and they could still go “big” with Hayward/Joe Johnson at the 2 a couple of minutes a game.

    He’s perfect, can pass, defend, and shoot. Cavs should pounce on him.

    Please let this be true, Mack is terrible, can’t stand having to watch him play at all. Finally Quinn Snyder saw the light and put him at the end of the bench where he belongs. Give him away for the trade exception and nothing else is fine…It opens a roster spot, and takes away Snyder’s temptation to play him.
