Either schedule a REALLY late lunch or conveniently have a call or use the bathroom around 3 p.m. today because it’s trade deadline day and it might get crazy.
Take of the day
With the Alec Burks trade, the Cavs have done their big move if I had to guess. Maybe Koby Altman has something else up his sleeve, and based on the Cavs’ roster, there will need to be moves between now and the start of next season. But unless the right opportunity presents itself, Altman should feel good about this being his body of work. He got the Cavs another first-round pick and has them well positioned to finish near or at the top of the lottery odds.
The hard part comes next, but Altman has set himself up well for it.
