NBA Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers unlikely to land Joakim Noah


The Cleveland Cavaliers are looking to improve their roster this offseason to make sure they don’t end up winning the No. 1 overall pick again in 2015 and they’re looking to make changes in big ways. There have been reports of the team looking to trade Dion Waiters and Tristan Thompson, but talks of who they will add have made more waves.

Earlier it was stated that the Cavs we eyeing Joakim Noah and LaMarcus Aldridge but it now appears that people with a grasp on basic logic have gotten wind of this and destroyed any hopes Cleveland has of landing either player — specifically Noah.

According to Sam Amico from FoxSportsOhio, the Cavaliers may covet Joakim Noah but they have no hope of landing him in anyway this offseason.

An ESPN report mentioned Bulls center Joakim Noah, Hawks center Al Horford and Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge as potential Cavs targets. But sources told FOX Sports Ohio on Wednesday the acquisition of Noah is extremely unlikely. Also, the Cavs’ feelings on Horford were described as “lukewarm.”

It’s pretty incredible that anyone really thought that the Cavaliers had a chance of landing Noah because there is absolutely no way the Bulls are giving him up for anything. He’s one of the best centers in the NBA and top big men are hard to find. Chicago not only won’t give up Noah, they definitely won’t give up Noah to a division rival.

Then again, the Bulls traded Loul Deng to the Cavs this past season, so nothing is impossible — well, except the Cavaliers landing Noah.
