NBA Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers to be quiet at trade deadline?


After acquiring Luol Deng from the Chicago Bulls last week, speculation was that the Cavaliers weren’t done making moves. However, according to Cleveland.com, it appears as if general manager Chris Grant may sit on his hands come Feburary’s NBA trade deadline in an effort to see what he has.

Per Cleveland.com:

I asked Chris Grant if the Cavs would be looking to make another move this season. Here’s what he had to say: “It’s hard to predict. We’ve generally been pretty active. My preference is not to be active right now and let these guys settle in and learn [about] each other. But if a good opportunity presents itself, then sure we’ll make another deal.”

In short, the Cavs are feeling relatively comfortable with their roster right now and don’t want to make needless moves just to say they did. Such a stance makes sense.

If a trade they can’t refuse makes its way to Grant’s desk, they’ll take a look at it – but for now it looks like the Cavs are content with their roster as is.

    Like all Cleveland sports teams, they prefer to sit on their hands and watch other teams improve their rosters.
