NBA Trade Rumors – The Cleveland Cavaliers seem to be inclined to continue making moves on trade deadline day, and Tyler Zeller could be the next man out of the door. After acquiring Spencer Hawes, the Cavaliers are now looking to move their young 7-footer and have apparently been shopping him for the last couple of days.
As I reported yesterday, Cleveland had called the Clippers about Tyler Zeller. Makes even more sense now that they've acquired Spencer Hawes

Now, the Los Angeles Clippers are also looking to make moves, and it has been reported that Doc Rivers is looking to get deeper up front. It seems that the Cavaliers are offering Zeller to the Clippers, but obviously he could land elsewhere. The Clippers were also rumored to be looking into a deal for Iman Shumpert with the New York Knicks, but with Shumpert sidelined with a knee injury, their focus could turn to adding a solid big man to the rotation.
In the Cavaliers’ last six games (all wins, surprisingly) Zeller has seen some more playing time and the team has showcased him well. Against the 76ers, he put up a monster game with 18 points and 15 rebounds, following that contest up with a 16-point effort against the Orlando Magic.
