NBA Trade Deadline: Cleveland Cavaliers make no trades, do absolutely nothing

Elsa

The 3 PM trade deadline has come and gone. And the Cleveland Cavaliers locker room looks exactly the same as it did yesterday.

Byron Scott suggested that he didn't expect the Cavaliers to make any moves at the deadline -- and he was right.

It is now past the 3 PM Eastern deadline on Thursday and that means that the Cavaliers are 99% likely to stand pat. There's always the slightest of chances that a trade could get through past the deadline if it were filed to the league before three o'clock, but it's unlikely.

Of course, Chris Grant and Co. already made their splash when they traded Jon Leuer for Wayne Ellington, Marreese Speights, and a future first round pick. But now that's what the Cavs are working with. They will play out the rest of the season with the guys that they have.

There were rumors that Omri Casspi, Daniel Gibson, and/or Luke Walton may be moved. But alas, they will all keep their wine and gold jerseys.

Truthfully, I didn't really expect the Cavs to do anything and I'm not disappointed that they didn't. *shrug*
