The Cleveland Cavaliers have limited assets. That being said, they should enter the market for some of the stars that could be available via trade. Trade #1: Cleveland Cavaliers - Minnesota Timberwolves Cleveland trades: Jordan Clarkson | George Hill | Kyle Korver | '21 unprotected first round pick Minnesota trades: Jimmy Butler | Gorgui Dieng | Justin Patton Why for Cleveland? The trade is centered around acquiring Jimmy Butler & his bird rights, making it likely he'll consider rejoining the team next season. They achieve that in this trade along with absorbing Gorgui Dieng's horrible contract. Justin Patton is a prospect Cleveland could use in the future. Why for Minnesota? Jimmy Butler is unhappy in Minny and expires at the end of the season. The Wolves acquire a combo guard who can score in bunches in Jordan Clarkson, George Hill, who isn't guaranteed for next season & one of the best shooters in the league in Kyle Korver, who has a decent contract. The fetch here is a potentially valuable unprotected first round pick. Trade #2: Cleveland Cavaliers - Boston Celtics Cleveland trades: Collin Sexton | Tristan Thompson | '23 unprotected first round pick Boston trades: Kyrie Irving | Semi Ojeleye Why for Cleveland? Acquire a familiar face in Kyrie Irving along with his bird rights, making them a legitimate contender to retain him long term. Semi Ojeleye is added for salary purposes. Why for Boston? They get a solid prospect in Collin Sexton instead of potentially losing Kyrie in free agency. Tristan Thompson is a well rounded big, added to make salaries match. Additionally, they receive an unprotected first round pick a few years down the road. Trade #3: Cleveland Cavaliers - Golden State Warriors Cleveland trades: Ante Zizic | '21 second round pick Golden State trades: Quinn Cook Why for Cleveland? Acquire a decent back-up point guard. Why for Golden State? Add a solid big man to their bench. A second round pick is added to sweeten the deal. These trades are made with the idea that they want to play together and would likely stick in Cleveland. By acquiring their bird rights, Cleveland can offer them both the full max. Please correct me if I'm wrong. This, assuming the opposing team accepts the offers. After these trades, the Cavaliers line-up would look like this: PG: Kyrie Irving | Quinn Cook SG: Jimmy Butler | J.R. Smith SF: Rodney Hood | Sam Dekker | Cedi Osman PF: Kevin Love | Semi Ojeleye | Larry Nance Jr. C: Gorgui Dieng | Justin Patton Coach: Larry Drew Notes: This would be a powerhouse in the East for the next 3-4 years. They gamble heavily by giving up two unprotected firsts for a couple expiring guys. Make it happen Dan Gilbert!
