The Cleveland Cavaliers have been on the move this Wednesday morning, clearing nearly $10 million in cap space by sending Jarrett Jack, Sergey Karasev and Tyler Zeller in a packaged deal to the Brooklyn Nets and Boston Celtics. After shedding that money, the Cavs are now said to be in pursuit of sharpshooter and three-point aficionado Ray Allen, according to Chris Broussard of ESPN. Allen has also stated that he may retire and that he would like to finish off his career playing with LeBron James.
The Cavs’ recent free agency wish list also includes two other players who have played alongside LeBron James while on the Miami Heat. Forward James Jones and and free agent small forward Mike Miller have also come across Cleveland’s radar, according to David Aldridge of TNT and Sam Amico of Fox Sports Ohio respectively. All three of the aforementioned players would be able to fill holes as role players for not much at all, leaving enough money for the Cavs to attract a big superstar like James.
Things have developed relatively quickly for the Cavs today, and there are no signs of rumors slowing down. With LeBron meeting with Heat president Pat Riley and teammate Dwyane Wade today in Las Vegas, the Cavs could be making these moves/rumored to be making these moves in a final attempt to win James back.
