The Cavs contacted Sacramento about a possible trade for guard George Hill, and the New York Times reported that Cleveland has also engaged the Los Angeles Clippers about DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams. The Times said the Cavs have floated J.R. Smith, Tristan Thompson, and Iman Shumpert in possible trades — all of them have been here for each of Cleveland’s last three Finals runs and have seen their roles diminish this season for one reason or another. The Cavs are 1-4 in their last five games and privately their marquee players have suggested the team needs a roster upgrade or two. “I like our group,”Tyronn Lue reiterated. “Until we figure out rotations and getting guys healthy and what we have … I like what we have.”
Lue reiterated that he would not be making any lineup changes – the slumping Jae Crowder and JR Smith will remain in the starting unit – but he did implore both players to be more aggressive when looking for their offensive opportunities. “I think with JR and Jae, they just can’t turn down shots. If you have shots, you got to take them,” Lue said. “It doesn’t matter if you miss 7-8 in a row. If that’s your shot, you got to take that shot. So Jae and JR passed up on a few (recently) that I wanted them to take.”

LeBron James was eating at a taco spot here in Central Florida when he saw Grambling State’s Shakyla Hill recorded a quadruple double in a women’s college basketball game this week. “Me and Swish (J.R. Smith) was like ‘holy sh…that’s impressive,'” James said Saturday. “It doesn’t matter what level you at, what type of league you in, male or female, you able to get a quadruple double in any facet, obviously not with turnovers. She did it with steals.
