Cavaliers Pursue DeAndre Jordan and Lou Williams Ahead of NBA Trade Deadline

Sources: Cavs expressing interest in deal for Kings guard George Hill

The Cavaliers have also registered trade interest in the Clippers' Lou Williams, according to league sources, with Cleveland vets such as Tristan Thompson and J.R. Smith featuring in various trade proposals.

To make things more interesting, the Cavaliers even have some assets on hand - the Brooklyn Nets' first round pick and their own first round pick - that they could probably use to at least entice a team to negotiate with them on a trade.

Following the Cleveland Cavaliers' dismal showing against the Oklahoma City Thunder, in which they gave up 148 (!) points in a 148-124 regulation loss, Kanter chimed in with his thoughts via Twitter.

With two off-days on either side the Cavs game, the Thunder aren't just staying away from opponents. But, what, if anything, is this slump telling us?

Cleveland averages 32.8 three pointers per game, which ranks third in the National Basketball Association. After the game, James was upset with the team performance and he talked about the playoffs. Now they have beaten the Cleveland Cavaliers as well.

To add to that, the Cavs defense is nearly certainly the worst that it has been since James' return.

This type of midseason slump is not something new to the Cavaliers and their loyal fanbase. And the team has had regular-season drama before only to flip a switch and roll through the postseason en route to three straight trips to the NBA Finals and a title in the 2015-16 season. During the streak, they averaged over 100 points per game and won seven-straight on the road. In previous seasons, it felt different. But theoretically, Williams is what the Cavaliers hope Isaiah Thomas can be in April and May, once he has fully fit into the offense and feels adjusted after his injury absence.

This season, the numbers say different.

The Thunder started the game on an 8-0 run and built the lead to 19 at the end of the first quarter.

"It's been very challenging just from the simple fact of how many guys have been in and out", he said.

The third quarter started, and LeBron James, seeking an illustrious mark, was stuck on nine points.

It's been a rough ride so far this season.

OKC has not been a dominant team this season, but they do have dominant wins against dominant teams.

It's nearly certain that Cleveland won't end up with all three of those players.

The front office was not expected to fire Lue, and Lue wouldn't make changes to his coaching staff, but those changes were discussed by reporters and players in the immediate aftermath of Saturday's disaster.
