Cleveland Cavaliers Rumors
Trae Young reportedly conducted a “secret workout” with the Cleveland Cavaliers on June 16, per ESPN’s Jonathan Givony. The Cavs reportedly view Michael Porter Jr. as their top choice; however, point guard is a clear need on the roster should Porter not be available. Thirty-two-year-old George Hill is the only point guard currently under contract for the 2018-19 season.
Jordan Zirm: it’s not hard to see why the Cavs like Shai Gilgeous-Alexander. he’s so smooth getting to the hoop and finishing around the rim. great size and vision. I just always come back to shooting and how you project his improvement at the next level
Cleveland has in fact inquired about Kawhi Leonard’s availability from the Spurs, among others, and league sources suggested Charlotte’s Kemba Walker could be in play for the Cavs.
The Cavaliers will not know what LeBron James intends to do this summer when they execute their NBA draft plan Thursday, numerous sources told cleveland.com. James has until June 29 to exercise the $35.6 million player’s option on his contract for next season, and if he lets it pass then he’s an unrestricted free agent who could still return to Cleveland.
David Hardisty: According to @Adrian Wojnarowski, Chris Paul isn’t focused on his own free agency as much as he is bringing talent to Houston. “Somebody close to (Paul) said to me that he has his focus on recruiting LeBron (to Houston) as anything he’s done in this league.”
