Carrick Felix, a second year guard out of Arizona State is head to Utah, reports Yahoo Sports:
Utah's trading John Lucas, Malcolm Thomas and Erik Murphy to Cleveland for Carrick Felix, future 2nd and $1M, sources tell Yahoo.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) July 22, 2014
Felix, whose deal is fully guaranteed, will be replaced by three players who are the exact opposite. John Lucas, Erik Murphy, and Malcom Thomas can all be cut at no cost to the Cavaliers, or a team that ends up with them via trade, which is the most likely outcome. Felix spent just one injury-plagued season with the Cavs, never really making any kind of impact. He played in 7 games, averaging 2.7 points, 0.9 rebounds, and 0.6 assists.
Obviously, this only increases speculation that a Kevin Love trade is close to completion.
