According to several league sources, the Cavs are involved in discussions with a handful of teams. They have looked into acquiring point guard Andre Miller of the Philadelphia 76ers and shooting guard Mike Miller of the Memphis Grizzlies, among others. But neither is assured of being traded and if the Cavs get into bidding wars with other teams, they are not in a good position because they don’t have very attractive trade assets.
There’s a good chance the trade deadline will come and go without the Cavaliers doing anything, but a couple guys to keep an eye on are Seattle’s Delonte West, who is stuck behind Earl Watson and Luke Ridnour, and Portland’s Jarrett Jack. Both are point guards on teams who don’t want a ton in return, which could make them attractive to Cavaliers GM Danny Ferry.
Either Miller would be awesome. I’d like Delonte West or Jarrett Jack, but I wonder if they can be had without giving up a first round draft pick.
I didn’t see this little nugget yesterday from Chad Ford:
With Bucks GM Larry Harris in trouble, no one’s sure whether owner Herb Kohl will let him make a deal. If the Bucks are active, don’t be surprised if the player moved is Michael Redd. He has a ton of talent, but the three years and $34 million left on his contract are a concern for Milwaukee — and for potential trade partners as well.
