The NBA trade deadline is approaching fast which means that teams are starting to look at their rosters and deem players untouchable and deem them expendable. The Cleveland Cavaliers have already said that Kyrie Irving is untouchable but there have been persistent rumors about Dion Waiters’ future with the team.
According to head coach Mike Brown, the team should consider trading Waiter because he’s still learning to play with Irving and that’s something that could grow into something special.
“They’ve had some moments where they’ve played very well together on the floor,” Brown said. “They are two young guys trying to figure out how to play the right way themselves, no matter who else is out on the floor. They are getting better learning how to play with each other.”
Of course, a vote of confidence from Brown is useless as the team is likely going to be letting him go if he can’t turn this thing around. Still, he may be onto something when he says Irving and Waiters need more time to play together, the only question is will the Cavs allow that to happen?
