NBA Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers shopping Tyler Zeller


The Cleveland Cavaliers have had a busy morning.

They traded for veteran center Spencer Hawes from the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for expiring contracts and second round draft picks.

With Anderson Varejao and Tristan Thompson already in the front court, this could create a bit of a logjam and could leave Tyler Zeller the odd man out.

According to Jason Lloyd of the Akron Beacon Journal, the Cavaliers are now shopping Zeller.

Additionally, a league source told the Beacon Journal the Cavs have been shopping second-year center Tyler Zeller the last few days. Hawes’ arrival could signal Zeller’s exit.

On possible spot for Zeller? The Los Angeles Clippers, according to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register.

The Clippers make a lot of sense because they have been chasing depth in their front court.

Zeller is averaging 4.9 points and 3.8 rebounds in 13.7 minutes per game this season.
