According to Chris Haynes of the Northeast Ohio Media Group, the Cleveland Cavaliers have reportedly interested in free agent point guard Jordan Farmar. Farmar clears waivers on Sunday. Yahoo! Sports first reported yesterday that the Clippers were waiving Farmar yesterday to make room for guard Austin Rivers, son of Clippers coach and president Doc Rivers.

Farmar played for Cavaliers coach David Blatt and Maccabi Tel Aviv during the 2011 NBA Lockout. In seven games with Maccabi, he averaged 17.3 points in 31.2 minutes per game.

In 36 games this season, Farmar has averaged 4.6 points and and 1.9 assists. Taken in the first round of the 2006 NBA Draft, he has played for the Clippers, the Los Angeles Lakers and the then New Jersey Nets. If signed, Farmar would figure to take Matthew Dellavedova's spot in the rotation and play backup point guard.

The Cavaliers have also expressed interested in free agent Nate Robinson, who was recently waived by the Boston Celtics. Because the Cavs have an open roster spot, the Cavs would be able to sign either Robinson or Farmar outright.
