Nevertheless, the Cavaliers have little choice but to dutifully make the moves necessary to make James an offer. The biggest obstacle remains unloading the contract of Jarrett Jack. The Cavaliers have found a landing spot for Jack and his $6.2 million annual salary in the Brooklyn Nets, but only if the Cavs can find a third team to take on Brooklyn's Marcus Thornton, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Later, Woj told FOX Sports Radio "Nets and Cavs have deal in place" but still need the third team. Woj didn't provide details of the deal. The Nets have had interest in Jack all year. At the deadline, Jason Kidd expressed his displeasure at Billy King's decision to trade Jason Terry and Reggie Evans to Sacramento for Thornton instead of Jack. Jack was reportedly at the top of Kidd's list, but he is owed nearly $13 million over the next three years while Thornton is in the last year of his deal, being owed $8.6 million. NetsDaily

According to league sources, the Nets may seek draft picks and a young player in a deal where they would have to take on new salary in 2015-16 and a small guarantee in 2016-17. Specifically, Jack has three years remaining on his deal, all of which are worth $6.3 million. However, his deal is only guaranteed for $500,000 in 2016-2017. NetsDaily
