Today is the day. It’s NBA Trade Deadline day. And for the Cleveland Cavaliers, there’s a lot to figure out still.

The two names to watch for the Cavs are Andre Drummond and JaVale McGee. The former seems less likely to be traded, but the market could change today. The buyout teams are interesting for him — the Lakers, the Clippers, the Nets — but maybe Cleveland can find a deal with the Knicks late in the day since the Knicks a) are interested and b) don’t think he’ll go there via a buyout.

As for McGee, there’s definitely a market there and it seems likely he’ll be dealt today. It’s probably for a second-round pick, and I understand that people seem to really like McGee, but that’s good return for him in stacking up picks.

As always: keep it civil and respectful in the comments and have fun today. Let’s hope for some deals.
