Report: Timberwolves interested in Iman Shumpert; Cavs making Shump available
James has been vocal over the last few weeks about wanting the Cavs to acquire another playmaker. While talks surrounding Carmelo Anthony have died down, other avenues are starting to ramp up.

Long-time Cavs and LeBron reported Brian Windhorst had this to say on the radio:
“The Cavs have definitely made Iman Shumpert available for talks.”
“I’ve heard that the Cavs have talked with New Orleans. I don’t know exactly what the substance of those talks were.”
It will be interesting to see in the coming days if anything materializes from this. Shumpert can certainly still be a valuable player for the Cavs but if he can yield another playmaker, the Cavs may be better off dealing him.
