Late Wednesday afternoon ESPN’s Marc Stein dropped a twitter NBA rumor involving the Cavaliers.
Hearing now that Cavs have strongly emerged as team trying to trump BKN and acquire Jordan Hill from Lakers. Looks like Cavs & Nets for Hill
— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) February 19, 2014
According to Stein, the Cavs are looking to acquire PF Jordan Hill from the Lakers. Hill is 26 years old and averages 8.5 points and 7 rebounds per game this season. He makes $3.5 million dollar contract expires at the end of the season.
Apparently the Cavaliers, Nets, Mavericks and Suns have all inquired about trading for Hill.
The Cavaliers seemingly have a logjam at power forward, unless Anderson Varejao is (gulp) injured worse than the Cavaliers are saying (again).
