The Cleveland Cavaliers just made a rather significant trade with the Memphis Grizzlies. But it sounds as though they may not be done just yet.
The trade with the Grizzlies brought Wayne Ellington, Josh Selby, and Marreese Speights to Cleveland. Selby got sent down to the Canton Charge to get some playing time, but Speights and Ellington both played key roles in Friday night's win over the Milwaukee Bucks.
Despite that, the Cavs are willing to keep moving guys.
Since the Cavs aren't trying to win this season, moving Speights to a playoff team that needs another big man could bring a nice return. I'd like to keep Speights for his energy, value, and ability to give Tyler Zeller some help down low. But if the Boston Celtics were to offer their first round pick for him, you'd have to take that, right? I'm not saying that the Celtics are interested or would give up their first round pick -- but such an offer would definitely make Chris Grant think.
It's reported that Daniel Gibson and Omri Casspi are also on the trading block. A team such as the Denver Nuggets could use some outside shooting and the salary relief that the Cavaliers can provide with Luke Walton's expiring contract. Nothing is imminent and these are just trade rumors (which I know everybody loves), but it's something to keep an eye on.
