According to league sources familiar with the Cavs’ plan, James will begin to throttle down his workload as the playoffs approach. He also has gotten a reprieve with the Cavs’ acquisition of Deron Williams, who can share some of the playmaking responsibilities, and with the return of Kevin Love from left knee surgery Thursday. “They’re starting to get healthy at the right time,” a league source said.
Ultimately, Williams saw his best opportunity to combine playing time with a chance to win in Cleveland, which has needed a backup point guard all season, since a knee injury to veteran Mo Williams ended his career in the fall. In fact, a source said, the Cavs had inquired about Williams even in the offseason, hoping to bolster their backcourt. At the deadline, though, the Cavs knew they need not give up anything to the Mavs for Williams, but only had to wait until he was set free.
