The Cleveland Cavaliers are ready to talk about trading SG Iman Shumpert.
After a quiet summer, it appears as though the Cleveland Cavaliers are open to shaking up their roster. Yesterday, the news broke that the Cavaliers were in advanced talks to acquire a back-up point guard. Today we hear that teams have been calling about Iman Shumpert and according to Zach Lowe, the Cavs are ready to discuss a deal.
J.R. Smith was intended to be the tax for acquiring Shumpert, who the Cavs viewed as their starting shooting guard of the future. With Smith looking like the permanent fixture in this role, it makes sense that the Cavs would at least listen to offers on Shumpert.
