NBA Trade Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers asking price for trades is extremely high


The Cleveland Cavaliers are not in a good place at the moment and are currently trying to find ways to right the ship before it snaps in half and sinks like the Titanic. General manager Chris Grant was fired last week and the team is looking for ways to correct his mistakes, and one way could be to start making trades.

Cleveland seems to overvalue their players though, which is one reason why Eddie Sefko from SportsDayDFW doesn’t believe they’ll be sellers at the deadline. According to Sefko, the Cavs are looking for a king’s ransom in return for their key pieces.

Cleveland is another team that would seem to be in the trade market. But they think pretty highly of most of their key pieces and aren’t likely to move them for anything less than a king’s ransom.

This seems like one of those situations where you post your nosebleed tickets on StubHub for $3,000 just to see if some poor fool will buy them. The Cavs want other teams to dig them out of their hole and that just doesn’t seem likely given the fact that guys like Luol Deng can just be had in the offseason anyways.
