Cleveland Cavaliers complete five player trade with Boston Celtics

Cleveland receives Keith Bogans in the deal.

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Cleveland Cavaliers are on the verge of completing a 5 player trade with the Boston Celtics.

The player they're getting is Kieth Bogans. This according to Marc Stein and Jason Lloyd


Here is the final tally:

Why? You ask? What is his role?

Basically, he is a contract. A nice contract, sorta. Apparently next year he has a nice fat non-guaranteed number

So yeah, the Cavs game plan is very clear. They will be capped out for the near future, and they plan on using massive non-guaranteed money to supplant cap space as a way to acquire talent.

As far as the rest goes, I'm not sure Bogans can play, as he barely saw the court in Boston last year. He has a good reputation, and will be yet another hard working veteran in a radically new locker room that had little veteran leadership last season.
