Albert Miralles RumorsAll NBA Players
The 2016 NBA Champion Cleveland Cavaliers have acquired guard/forward Mike Dunleavy and the draft rights to forward Vladimir Veremeenko from the Chicago Bulls in exchange for the rights to forward Albert Miralles. Dunleavy will be accepted into the trade exception that was created in the Cavs trade earlier today with Milwaukee, that also included the draft rights to Miralles, General Manager David Griffin announced from Cleveland Clinic Courts. “We are very pleased to be able to welcome Mike to our Cavaliers family,” said Griffin. “His size, shooting, basketball IQ, and versatility make him a great fit for our group on the floor. While his experience, professionalism, grit, and team first character will be key for us in the locker room.”
According to Ainge, the Celtics still own the rights to Albert Miralles, a 6-foot-11 center who plays in Spain and came to Boston as a throw-in in the Antoine Walker megadeal with Miami in 2005. But indications are that Miralles will stay where he is for the foreseeable future; he turns 29 next year. The rights to previous foreign-born draftees Josip Sesar (second round, 2000, in a trade with Seattle) and Ben Pepper (second round, 1997) have been allowed to expire, Ainge said. Normally, if a team wants to keep its rights, it merely has to tender an offer by a certain deadline.
