NBA Rumors: Dion Waiters most likely player to be traded by Cleveland Cavaliers

If the Cleveland Cavaliers make a move come the NBA’s trade deadline, the most likely player to be shipped out is guard Dion Waiters – this according to Basketball Insider’s Moke Hamilton.

Hamilton goes on to elaborate that pretty everybody is available for the right price considering the Cavaliers are struggling, but Waiters is the most likely target to be moved.

It’s been a pretty poorly kept secret that there is some serious locker room friction over there in Cleveland. I think they have a bunch of movable, valuable assets, though. Tristan Thompson is coveted by many, from what I hear, but if we’re talking about the guy most likely to be moved, I think we’d be looking at Dion Waiters. But when you’re 16-30 and tearing at the seams, everyone can be had.

Waiters’ ‘act’ has reportedly grown thin with his teammates who have tired of his sulking.

Much like Kyrie Irving, Waiters needs the ball in his hands to be effective and considering Irving likes to dribble the air out of the ball, it doesn’t look like a promising tandem moving forward.

The Los Angeles Lakers allegedly asked for Waiters in a deal for Pau Gasol earlier this year, something the Cavaliers were said to have declined.
