CLEVELAND (92.3 The Fan) – With limited assets available to trade, Cavs general manager David Griffin will likely have to wait until after the NBA’s trade deadline passes to add to the roster.
One name that has been linked to Cleveland is center Andrew Bogut, who was traded by Dallas to Philadelphia along with Justin Anderson and a conditional first-round pick for Nerlens Noel Thursday morning.
It is expected that the 76ers will try to deal Bogut before the deadline and if unsuccessful, they will buy him out paving the way for the Cavs to sign him as a free agent according to Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical.
ESPN and Cleveland.com have both reported the Cavs interest in Bogut.
Cleveland would have some competition for Bogut as the Boston Celtics also are interested in him.
The 32-year old center has started 21 of the 26 games he’s appeared in and is averaging 3 points, 8.3 rebounds, 1.9 assists and a block in just over 22 minutes per game this season.
The Cavs signed Derrick Williams to a second 10-day contract and worked out Larry Sanders this week but are in a holding pattern on making a decision as to whether or not to sign him.
