Before acquiring Caris LeVert from Indiana, the Cavaliers talked to the Clippers about a possible deal involving Luke Kennard, according to reports from Michael Scotto of HoopsHype and Jake Fischer of Bleacher Report.
Meanwhile, Jared Weiss of The Athletic suggests the Cavaliers may not be done dealing yet, writing that they remain in the mix for Celtics guard Dennis Schröder. A Cleveland offer for Schröder would likely include a draft pick and two players from a group that includes Ed Davis, Dylan Windler, and Kevin Pangos, says Weiss.
Even as the Cavs remain in the market for more backcourt help, it doesn’t appear likely they’re prepared to move on from injured guard Collin Sexton. According to Scotto, teams have called to inquire on Sexton, who will be a restricted free agent this summer, but Cleveland would prefer to keep him.
Here are a few more trade rumors from around the Eastern Conference:
- There’s still no indication the Wizards will do anything this week with Bradley Beal, who is getting his injured wrist evaluated, writes ESPN’s Brian Windhorst. The team still wants to keep him long-term and hasn’t heard anything from Beal that indicates he’s not committed to the franchise, sources tell ESPN.
- The Wizards have, however, continued to communicate their interest in trading their other starting guard, Spencer Dinwiddie, says Fischer. According to Fischer, it’s unclear what sort of market exists for Dinwiddie, who is having a poor season in D.C.
- As the Knicks continue their attempts to move a veteran or two, they’ve exhibited interest in acquiring players on expiring contracts, says Windhorst. Among the vets being shopped by New York, Alec Burks has generated the most interest, Fischer reports.
- According to Fischer, league personnel think the Magic will end up trading Terrence Ross in a deal similar to the Evan Fournier move from a year ago, which netted them a pair of second-round picks. Fischer adds that Gary Harris is considered a buyout candidate if he’s not traded at the deadline.

If the Knicks are looking to trade for expiring contracts using the stupid multi year deals they just signed they need to stop F’ing around and hire me to clean that mess up.
It really just isn’t as hard a they make it seem and they make just about every mistake you can think of.
Cleaning up the mess is not quite as simple as using trade finder in 2k my friend…
Amazing! 3 people who support signing contracts and trading them for cap space a few months later.
Or are you a big fan of coaches who injure players and refuse to get ready for the postseason? Do you need an expert to explain to you that it isn’t very smart?
Or I know. The best draft in forever and you have the 19th pick. Do you draft or pass? Yeah, just give me the 19th pick or lower some day.
I’m not even talking about any deep basketball knowledge. I’m talking about someone on staff who stops everyone when they get drunk. Someone to make them prepare for the draft by looking at a lot more players. Someone who understands that a PG is a position that needs to be filled with a point guard.
Do you think the Knicks are screwing up because of something deep that you don’t have the capacity to understand?
So happy Cavs are turning down Sexton offers. He could be such an essential player off the bench next year. It is also clear that he really wants to be here and it sounds like he is willing to take less money too.
He will have to take less since it isn’t that much room between the salaries and tax next season.
Yeah probably a lot less. Plus they’ll have to figure out how to pay Garland, Okoro, and Mobley over the next three years as well. But luckily Dan Gilbert is all in on the Cavs and wants to win more than worry about money (or at least he has in the past)
Gary Harris seems like a Thibs guy. A true grit type guy. Buyout or not, him and Thibs could use each other.
on a diff team, sure
Thibs loves playing mediocre vets over young guys with talent…
