Top 5 Trade / Acquisition Options for the Cavaliers
1. Norris Cole
The Cleveland State star turned two-time NBA champion alongside LeBron James in Miami could probably be the most likely player wearing the Wine & Gold while leading the Cavaliers’ second team offense if a trade happens. Miami reportedly has him on the trading block due to Chalmers and Napier consuming most of the minutes. Cole just does not have much of a role on the Heat this year. He is having the least productive season of his career, his first without LeBron James leading his team, and most of that is due to lack of playing time. LeBron has publicly praised Cole’s game making this trade option slightly more likely than one for Mo Williams. Cole has Cleveland connections and a history with James. While Williams may be a better player, Cole, due to age and potential could be a better fit not just because of his chemistry with James, but because of the future as well. He could help the Cavs throughout the playoffs since he knows what its like to win a title, but also be a long term member of the roster. He is in the final year of his contract and could look to get a big deal in the offseason as a starter, so it would be a gamble to trade for Cole.
