NBA Report: Mavericks Would Trade Deron Williams to Cavaliers for This…

LeBron James said the Cleveland Cavaliers need a “playmaker” and that they’re very “top heavy.”  He noted that he and Kyrie Irving play a ton of minutes because they have no other choice.  All that spells out that they’re very much on the hunt for a backup point guard.  They reportedly held workouts with Mario Chalmers, Lance Stephenson, Kirk Hinrich, and Jordan Farmar.  Now they’re exploring trade options.  The Dallas Mavericks are reportedly willing to part ways with Deron Williams, whom the Cavaliers are reportedly interested in, but would the Cavs be ok with this asking price?

LeBron James recently went on an expletive-filled tirade about the Cavaliers needing a playmaker.  3. LeBron and Carmelo are really close friends who want to play together at some point in their careers.  So you put all that together and one would think sending Melo to the Cavs would be a go, but alas it is not.
