The New Orleans Pelicans are taking on the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA action on Tuesday night. Both teams are sub-.500 and they’re looking for a much-needed win. Cavaliers shooting guard Dion Waiters has been the subject of some trade rumors, but as of now they aren’t expected to move him.

According to Mary Schmitt Boyer:

I would not characterize Waiters as disruptive. He can be moody when things are not going well, but given how things are going, that might be understandable. I think there are 29 teams that would be interested in acquiring someone who can score like he does, which is why I think the Cavs will hold onto him unless they get an amazing offer.

Waiters is proving himself to be a desirable asset with 11 points in 14 minutes in the first half.
