"Cleveland" the first half of the home match against "Orlando" has won with 20 points margin, but to avoid problems the Cavaliers could not. 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.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are pursuing a dramatic reshaping of their roster before the N.B.A.'s February 8 trade deadline in hopes of rising out of a worrisome midseason funk, according to two people familiar with the team's plans.
Sources also said the Cavs' needs are a guard who can shoot and handle the ball, and, secondly, a rim protector.
Trades for new players would start the process all over again. The Kings have made a decision to play rookie point guard D'Aaron Fox, which makes Hill expendable.More news: Wawrinka happy to be back, but still feeling pain
That would mean the Kings would have to send another player in a deal with Hill or possibly buy out one of their veterans, such as Vince Carter, who makes $8 million this season.
Love finished the night shooting 3-of-10 with 12 points, 11 rebounds and two assists, but in the second half he only had four shot attempts - fewer than Thomas (nine), James (seven) and Jeff Green (seven). Randolph is under contract for next season while Koufos and Temple both have player options for next season.
Jordan is a defensive star averaging a career-high 14.9 rebounds this season, although his block numbers are significantly down to just one a game this season. His 45.6% shooting from three ranks him 3rd in the National Basketball Association and is a career-high for the 31-year-old veteran. Charania says that the Cavs have emerged as an "interested suitor". The Kings would likely want a draft pick to be enticed to make a deal. Derrick Rose played Thursday for the first time since Nov. 7 and Iman Shumpert has been out since mid-November with a knee injury.
However, the Cavaliers aren't going to just give up in the middle of the season, and the New York Times' Marc Stein said a trusted source has told him that they are "definitely" going to make a move before the trade deadline.
Gordon's three-pointer helped the Rockets finish the third quarter on a 16-4 run to take an 89-70 lead into the fourth with their largest advantage of the game.
