NBA Rumors: Cleveland Cavaliers Reportedly 'Interested' In 7 Proven Veterans

As the 2022 NBA trade deadline approaches, we get to hear more rumors about what teams are going to do to improve their roster for the remainder of the season. While most fans are keeping tabs on the Los Angeles Lakers, the rest of the association is trying to find the pieces to have a better bid for the NBA championship. 

The surprising Cleveland Cavaliers combine youth and experience, which has taken them to the 6th seed of the Eastern Conference. They aren't done yet and want to keep climbing positions, which is why they're looking to add more players ahead of the trade deadline. 

The Cavs were linked with a move for Ben Simmons when Ricky Rubio suffered a season-ending injury, but now their focus is on a variety of players that could add depth and a variety of things to the 2016 NBA champions. 

“If the [Brooklyn] Nets make Joe Harris available, and I’m not saying that they’re going to, but if they make him available, the Cavs would be very interested there,” said Cavs insider Chris Fedor. “Terrence Ross is somebody who makes a lot of sense from Orlando. Dennis Schroder makes sense from Boston given what the Cavs would have to offer, given what his salary is. Joe Ingles of the Utah Jazz is a name to watch for, Goran Dragic of Toronto.

“I’m not sure that Kyle Anderson would be moved by Memphis because of how good Memphis is, and they’re a legitimate contender in the Western Conference, but if they were willing to listen to offers on Kyle Anderson, I think that’s somebody that would intrigue the Cavs. And then Eric Gordon of the Houston Rockets makes a lot of sense given his salary and what it would take in order to get him.”

The Cavs are having a very good season, surprising the entire NBA world with his performances. Some players on the list will have a bigger impact than others, but there's no doubt whoever lands in Cleveland will be a big addition to the Cavaliers. 

They already traded for Rajon Rondo and seeing how beneficial he's been for the team, it won't be a shock if they add more experience to an already interesting squad.
