Right before the NBA Draft, the Houston Rockets were reportedly looking to trade away a few players including swingman Trevor Ariza. Their attempts were unsuccessful, however, as they couldn’t find a proper suitor for Ariza. He may no longer be on the market after the major roster upgrade, but there is a team interested: the Cleveland Cavaliers.
According to Chris Broussard of ESPN, the Cavs want to try and acquire Ariza in a trade with Houston, but again, the Rockets aren’t looking to trade.

Through five days in NBA free agency, the Cavs and Thunder are the only two teams who haven’t made a move in agreeing with a free agent. One team is obviously doing a lot better than the other, as we all know, but the Cavs still have a lot of work to do this offseason to try and counter to prepare the Western Conference All-Star team in Oakland.
Stay tuned for the latest on Cavs free agency.
