Happy Monday, everyone. Today, we’re here to catch you up on the biggest Cavs story of the summer.
Yesterday, we learned that the Cavs asked about adding Jayson Tatum and Jaylen Brown to the deal, but were rebuffed and are likely looking for another first round pick. We also learned that Boston only wants to include a second round pick.
Then, this morning, Cleveland.com’s Joe Vardon reported that the Cavs have not asked the Celtics for any extra compensation. So, basically, we all know nothing.
